Hello, I am subleasing a place for 3 months, however, I have broken the lease recently - 6 weeks prior to the end of said sublease (which ends on October 31st), but the real tenant is not having it and is telling me that I'm legally responsible for the last month due. There is absolutely no clause in the 1 page subtenancy agreement that I have with him, except the one saying that the deposit will be used in case of non payment of rent. I'd like to know the following: The sublease being between the real tenant and I (not with the agency that acts as his landlord), am I legally responsible (I insist on the "legally")? The lease only indicates the amount I have to pay each month and the subtenancy period, there is no clause in it. I broke the lease because I was offered a job abroad, and since there is absolutely no clause in the subtenant agreement, I assume the responsibility falls under the real tenant here? What could possibly happen to me should I leave before the end of the lease, besides of course losing my bond? I'm worried about leaving/returning to Australia (I'm not a citizen) but I also wonder how much of a power a tenant has over a subtenant in such situation? Can I be requested to pay the rent balance by Australian authorities? Can I be blacklisted next time I ask for a visa? I'm not sure how far this can go as I'm only a subtenant here and I believe that the tenant is the one still legally responsible for paying his rent, sublease or not, is that correct? Please help, as the real tenant is telling me that he doesn't care about me having to leave because of a job and that I'm legally responsible for the rent until the end of October because of the sublease I signed (his agency/landlord is aware of the subtenancy agreement but I didn't sign anything with them). I have been a tenant before and technically speaking, only the person signing the lease with the agency/landlord is legally responsible for paying the rent no matter what, but I am not familiar with the NSW laws on the matter. Thank you.
