Tenancy is a joint tenancy (a couple with two children) and the one tenant has moved out after a breaking up with the other.
Remaining tenant wishes to stay in the property and has asked for the other tenant to be removed from the tenancy (which we are happy to do). No contact has been made by the other tenant.
TA is the Guild’s agreement.
I’m aware that either of the joint tenants can give notice to end the tenancy, but does the notice have to run its course (to expire on a rent day) before a new tenancy can be issued, or can the tenancy be ended immediately by agreement with the remaining tenant only?
There is also a deposit (DPS Custodial scheme) – will this need un-protecting / re-protecting and new prescribed info issuing? If so, should the condition of the property be assessed before returning the deposit, or would the remaining tenant assume liability for any damage when they come to move out?
Finally, the EPC for the property has just expired. Will this need to be renewed before a new tenancy is issued to the remaining tenant?
Thanks for your help!
