I was wondering if someone could help. There are 4 of us who share a house under a joint AST with a fixed term of 12 months which recently ended. We have since rolled onto a periodic tenancy but it looks like one person will be soon to leave with the other three wishing to remain on the same existing terms.
From what I can gather, one way to go about it might be for one of us to trigger the notice period and terminate the periodic tenancy before the remaining three people negotiate and sign a new AST fixed term contract with the landlord. However, we’d rather do something simpler, if possible, and just amend the existing periodic tenancy (based on our now expired AST) and remove the name of the one person who’s leaving.
Does anyone know if this would be possible and how we’d go about it? I appreciate it would require the acceptance of our landlord to agree to this but first want to understand if it’s technically possible to do.
Thanks in advance
