Welcome to JA.
I am sorry to hear about your situation.
Please note that this is not a chat service therefore you may experience delays.
Has your son sent a notice to quit after the fixed term period of the agreement?
Thanks for the further information.
Given this is a joint tenancy the agreement cannot be terminated before the end of the fixed term without the other tenants agreement.
However given it is now outside of the fixed term period your son can serve a notice to quit, which does not require the other tenants's agreement.
This action will terminate the current tenancy and will force the other tenants to enter a new agreement with the landlord or vacate the property.
This principle was confirmed in the case of Hammersmith & Fulham LBC v Monk.
I hope I have clarified the position, if not please let me know.
Thanks and stay safe.
I suggest you resend a notice to quit given your son's agreement is now outside of the fixed term period.
