On execution of this agreement the tenant will pay the landlord a security deposit of £1840
..and that the landlord will return at the end of the tenancy
Actually my question is on how to add the flat mate to an existing AST so that it will then be a join agreement?
OK, I guess I need to modify it such that it is all still valid. Can I ask a single tennancy agreement is identical to a joint except for the parties listed? i.e in one or two lines how could I word the addendum to add the new person. Surely where it refers to the existing tennant this needs to cover both tennants?
You need to formally amend the contract.
You need to amend the words to mean tenant = tenants.
Can I clarify anything else?

So do I reprint the whole agreement? Or can I just have a short amendment with the current date stating its an amendment to the original agreement where the tenant is now a joint tenancy and name the people. I can't seem to find a template on the internet for this? It all seems to be regarding amending certain terms, or the deeds of assginment assign it to someone else when someone leaves so that does not seem suitable? This must happen often right?
