During the Tenancy (England) | England | When and if Tenant Can Leaving During Tenancy (England)

Change of Occupancy

29 Dec 2020 | 1 comment

We have 3 tenants (England) on a guilds AST. Tenancy is still in the fixed term. 1 of the 3 tenants wishes to leave. 2 wish to remain.

He is fine with this in principle – however would like to understand if he must legally grant this or if he can refuse the request?

    During the fixed term, the landlord can accept or refuse. It’s a contract like any other and all parties are bound during the term.

    If the landlord accepts, a new tenancy would be needed in the two remaining names. The last day of the term could remain the same in the new tenancy if a longer agreement wasn’t wanted.
