Thank you for your query.  I am a Solicitor-Advocate in the UK and will be assisting you with your question today.

You would need tonsurrender or terminate the previous tenancy and enter into a new one with the remaining tenant.

I hope this answers your question.  If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks

Can they just edit the contract and remove on the tenants?
Expert:  INC Law replied 10 days ago.


If it has already started, unfortunately not. It will need to be surrendered and then a new one executed.
