Re: When am I released from my tenancy agreement?

So it seems that in fact the potential replacements must fill in the document on the website and the actual lender sends it to the landlord?

I think I am confused about the actual form that the tenants must fill out. I thought this form is from HEV. When/where is the landlord’s details specified? I might post a separate question.
Your landlord likely has application forms, maybe it is the HEV form, or they have created their own and put their own logo and details on it. Often the landlord fills in the details about the flat on the top portion of the form, including rent, NK, parking if any. Interested tenants fill this form out, provide their debt registry extract, and the landlord reviews the information. Most of the time the current tenant is not involved in this process, even if it is a nachmieter situation.

What you are reading on line is not what actually takes place in the real world. Yes, you need to do things from your side, give notice in writing by registered mail to the date you can give notice to. The landlord may run the ad, you must offer viewings. Or sometimes the tenant must run the ad. You should keep a list of who viewed the flat and attempt to find out if they applied.

Not everyone who views a flat decides on the spot they want to apply. In reality interested applicants communicate directly with the landlord. No one is going to give you their personal information to submit for them. You are not the agency, and not entitled to see their details. What you are reading on line is how the tenant's association suggests you put interested applicants forward so that you don't get caught out, but this isn't how it works.

Do you rent from a private landlord or an agency? Agencies generally manage the nachmieter process but you should confirm what you need to do. Who is running the ad? Who is paying for it? Why not advertise here?

What you need to do is keep yourself in the loop. Let's say you have 10 viewings, you will want to know if any of these 10 applied. This is a situation where you play the waiting game. The landlord gets his rent until you are obligated by your lease, so there is little motivation on their part to find you a nachmieter.

How quickly this will happen will depend on your flat, location, rent, whether it is a property in demand. I managed a corporate relocation where almost every tenant needed a nachmieter. There was only 1 flat where none could be found. In my opinion it was simply overpriced and despite being really nice in a good location, no one was desperate enough to apply.

Maybe you should talk to your landord and have them explain to you how the process works from their perspective. How long do they need to decide if an applicant is suitable? Should you call the landlord for updates or wait to hear from them?

Others here have told you they kept a list of viewings. I can only tell you from years of experience how the process has worked. I have on rare occasions submitted completed application forms on behalf of interested tenants. I was present for the viewings, I had forms and envelopes on hand, the applicants completed the form, sometimes I needed to help by translating, they placed the documents in the envelope for submission to the landlord. I delivered the forms.

The Covid situation also needs to be taken into consideration for viewings. Wear a mask, visitors should as well. Provide hand sanitizer too.

Wow you seem super angry and upset. You should relax.
I have nothing to be upset or angry about. I was just amazed about your attitude towards others who may want to keep some modicum of privacy. Your answer: they can pass.

That agitated me.

Of course thats totally cool that you're agitated. I am totally cool with discussion and debate - I was just amazed with the words you used.
