They may be taking over your apartment but the won't be taking over your contract AFAIK, just willing to take the apartment on the same basis as you. They will sign there own contact with the landlord with potentially new terms if needed, but that is down to them. Depending upon when the rent was last reviewed and if any work was done etc, the landlord would be within his rights to increase the rent I think, within reason of course. Unless he specifically told you (best in writing) that there would be no change to the rent for the next tenant, the rent you pay is a guide only. Did you confirm the new rental arrangement with the landlord before advertising the apartment? That not withstanding you have fulfilled your minimum obligation by providing a suitable tenant, the more the better though.
Thanks for your reply. Yes, I asked them whether there was anything they wanted to change before I started advertising.
