How to record a change of tenant on a myRent tenancy

25 November 2021

Before the tenant leaves there needs to be a written agreement from you (the landlord) and the remaining tenants to:- remove their name from the tenancy agreement, or replace their name with another tenant from an agreed date.

This can be agreed in the written form of email or a document. If everyone agrees, then record the change in writing, have yourself and all the remaining tenants sign it & make sure everyone has a copy (landlord, the tenant who’s leaving, and the tenants who’re staying)

If the leaving tenant has contributed to the bond, complete and send a change of tenant form to Tenancy Services.Form:

 https://www.tenancy.govt.nz/assets/Forms-templates/change-of-tenant-form.pdf

You can then upload copies of the paperwork to your tenancy on myRent for safe keeping.

Once your ready for your departing tenant to be removed from the tenancy on myRent please contact us at hello@myrent.co.nz or message us while logged in and we can remove them for you.

The new tenant can be onboarded to your tenancy through the people section of the tenancy.
