Changes to you tenancy

Frequently Asked Questions

You may want to share the responsibilities of your tenancy with someone who lives with you and ask for a joint tenancy. Please contact us to discuss in further detail.

If we approve your joint tenancy request, all tenants should sign the tenancy agreement.

If you have a joint tenancy with another person but only one of you wants to be the tenant, you need to contact us directly to discuss next steps.

This can happen when a relationship ends, and one partner agrees to leave the family home. Joint tenants need to let us know that they both agree to the change in tenancy. 

When a joint tenant terminates the tenancy, this ends the tenancy. The landlord is not legally obliged to grant a tenancy to the remaining tenant.

The remaining tenant is not entitled to a tenancy of the property. However, sometimes the landlord may decide to allow the remaining tenant to take on a new tenancy and stay in the property.

Please contact us to discuss in further detail.

When a tenant has a joint tenancy with their spouse or civil partner, they become the sole tenant if their spouse or civil partner dies. That person will become responsible for paying all the rent on the property.

Please contact us to discuss in further detail.

Transferring your tenancy to someone’s else is known as a tenancy assignment. You don't have a right to this type of assignment. We might approve an assignment in exceptional circumstances.

Please contact us to discuss in further detail.
