Hello my name is Jamie and I will help you.
Did that person sign the agreement? Does it say joint and several?
It’s 9 pages long and in small type. I just need to know if it’s joint and severel?
You are all equally liable.
No. It makes no difference. If he signed even thought the room is smaller, then it’s tough. He should have checked beforehand.
He is jointly liable. He can’t quit. If he does you can sue him for his share of the rent.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?

You could sue him. Yes totally legal. Its a matter of contract.
Should have checked before signing I am afraid.Does that clarify?
No. Up to you unless the contract specifies otherwise.
Should have checked before signing and agreeing.
Does that assist?
