tenancy agreement - seeking advice

I am wondering if anyone has any advice on tenancy agreements? In January I signed a joint contract with my flatmate on our 2-bed apartment in Neuchatel. If I move out, we would like to find someone else to take my room. Is this fairly normal and legal?

My flatmate is keen to make sure we tell the letting agent so everything is open but I am afraid there will be penalties. I am sure it depends on our contract which I need to get some help figuring out, in the meantime, I was hoping someone here might have some experience.

Hope to hear from you soon!
Lysandra

Knowing how powerfull "régies" are here, what you suggest is not only stupid but also ultra dangerous.

You really want to leave your name on the tenancy agreement and let someone else live there??? (damages, non paying the rent, etc...).

If you're scared or really want to know what "penalty" they will do, check the tenancy agreement, along with the "Vaud law about tenancy", which you must have as a leaflet provided when you got the whole tenancy documents.

For example, you learn that if the building has a "Policy" for standard name tags for mailboxes, doors, you should have the choice of "tag makers". (which is not said by régies, and they make profit on your ass).

If you signed a contract in Neuchatel , beware as the rules and tenancy usages that apply are those of NEUCHATEL and not VAUD unless they are strictly word-to-word copycated.
It is your liability to find a replacing tenant should you make an early termination....You put both your name on the lease with your co-tenant. If you fail finding a replement co-tenant your partner will become liable under current law to pay the WHOLE rent and you can also be prosecuted or responsible to pay . Besides the question remains on how many people paid the surety deposit? One person or the two co-tenants...
