  • Problem Tenants

    Request to remove now ex partner from tenancy

    Hi, first time posting here so be gentle...

    I'm after your thoughts on the below situation.

    I have a family (2 parents & 2 children) renting one of my properties. They are now on a periodic tenancy as the initial tenancy came to an end some months ago.

    I received a text from one of the parents asking if it was possible for the other parent to be removed from tenancy agreement as they have recently been removed from the property by social services and they don't want to give them any reason for them coming back to the property. They are quite happy to provide me with paperwork from social services to back this up.

    As the AST has expired, is it just a case of me serving a Notice to quit, refunding the deposit and then writing up a new AST in the single parent name and taking the deposit, again, in the single parents name? Or do i need to do anything else to ensure i'm compliant and everyone is treated properly?

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi John and welcome. Smile

    We are very nice here, have no fear!

    We have a video answer to that exact question from TDS:

    Don't serve notice, ask the tenant to give you notice.

    Unlike your notice, the tenant's notice will both end the tenancy and end the joint nature of it. You'd have to go to court to achieve that, because there would still one of the joint tenants living there which keeps the tenancy live.

    Then you can create a new tenancy with the single tenant only and the partner is out of the picture.

    At present both initial tenants are jointly and severally liable for rent - whereas remaining partner's means may not stack up for referencing - esp if RGI is required by landlord.
