Thank you for all the comments and advise
For now I have the assurances that the remaining tenant can pay and I’ve made it clear to both that should the remaining tenant not pay then both would be liable. I have also expressed to the remaining tenant that should financial difficulties happen communicating with me immediately will be better so a resolution can be found.
I have joint tenants just 1 month into an 12 month ast (who I waited 4 weeks for) they were looking for very long term and ideal for me. The one half has today emailed me today to say they are splitting up he is leaving to rent elsewhere and the remaining tenant will stay on.
- Apart form advising him that he is still responsible for Rent etc as it’s a joint tenancy what else should I do?
- What if he just ups and goes, I may not ever trace him? And my concern is the other not covering full rent if at all.
3.He was also the larger income provider (the other was indicated not to be able afford the full rent on his own indicated by rent guard referencing) but both passed referencing. There is no guarantor
Any factual and legal advise in what I should do would be greatly received
