Hi, thanks for your question. Just to check - s it definitely a joint tenancy with other tenants, or does each tenant have their own agreement?

It is definitely a joint tenancy agreement
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
Thanks. Yes you are able to give notice without the other tenant's permission as set out in the tenancy agreement - however, this will end the tenancy and effectively the other tenant/tenants will also have to move out upon expiry of your notice to quit.Please provide a positive rating if you found this information helpful.

and what would be the case if it wasn't a joint tenancy agreement?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
and how should I ideally go about submitting a notice to quit?
Expert:  Harris replied 1 year ago.
If each tenant had their own tenancy then they will continue to live at the property when you leave as their tenancy would continue. You will need to write to your landlord formally and inform them that you are giving notice to quit in accordance with the break clause in the agreement together with the amount of notice stipulated in the agreement. It would be helpful to the other tenants to inform them that you intend to do this so that they can arrange either amending the agreement so they continue living in the property, or make arrangements for someone to replace you.
