Hello Dave my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Does the tenancy agreement say they are joint and severally liable?
Ok. Assuming that is what it says:
1. Yes, they are joint and severally liable so they would have to find another tenant or split the cost
2. Yes it is, it would be in the written agreement
3. Yes, but if the tenants are joint and severally liable they all own the debt. It would be up to the tenants to then sue the tenant that left.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Sure. I would be surprised if it didn't say they were joint and severally liable. Alex
