Looks like you need to get married, cancel the contract & get divorced.
Would cost less to buy the apartment and then just give it to her.

Re: How to get out of a joint contract?

my hunch is that you can get out of the contract. but talk to the mv to confirm. do us a favour and let us know the outcome. since the standard quarterly notice date is coming, you might want to do this quickly else you could the there for another 6 months anyway.

Re: How to get out of a joint contract?

yeah, you're quibbling about "100 quid" but what it is worth to get a learned and qualified opinion?

100 quid.

In the greater scheme of things, it's nothing.

What I can't believe is that you a) don't know how she'll react but she's probably thinking the same as you and b) don't have the minerals to broach the subject.

Come on, man up! We ladies would not hold back

I would like to know where you read this because this it not what it says on the rental contracts my clients have signed which state that if a couple is married notice to terminate the rental agreement must be given by each person.
I'm sure that different contracts have different clauses. Mine says:
"Ein verheirateter Mieter kann den Mietvertrag nur mit schriftlicher Zustimmung des Ehegatten kündigen."

No harm in asking, is there?

She may well be thinking the same as me. On the other hand she has a pretty sweet deal at present and may be thinking the opposite, even if it ultimately only allows her to squeeze me for a few more months. Either way, I simply want to know where I stand, before I 'man up' - fools rush in, and all that jazz.

All I've sought here is practical experiences from people on what is essentially a legal issue. I'm not really interested in relationship advice, moralizing or the genius idea of marrying her to leave her.

I'll have a chat with the mv and report back. Thanks to all who contributed constructively.

I have news for you, neither is the Mieterverband. Your problem is your relationship and that you are jointly obligated to a rental contract whether you like it or not.

You need to sit down with your partner and decide on a solution and if you cannot do this then go seek professional help but this does not come from the Mieterverband.

Re: How to get out of a joint contract?

change the locks while she's out and tell her she's dumped by text

Edit: better idea... just email her the link to this thread...
