we have joint tenants one of whom has moved out and wants to cease responsibility and has served notice. The tenancy was initially from 9th October 2016 and is for monthly payment. It is badly in arrears and we have a court date of 2nd May for possible eviction following a section 8 notice. To make things more entertaining it appears that the other tenant is not living there but the flat is still full of their goods. Can she actually serve notice without the other party and I assume that if allowed to give notice it must be a months notice from the 9th May?
