I currently have a tenant who shares a property with three other people, four in total on a single tenancy agreement and the tenancy is currently periodic
One of the tenants wishes to leave and has served notice on the whole property. As the tenancy is periodic I know they can do that.
My questions is; because one tenant has served notice and the tenancy is joint and several what are the implications on the outgoing tenant if the other tenants refuse to leave? Also, what are the implications on the tenants in situe?
I imagine that as they are joint and several they all remain responsible, but because one tenant can in effect give notice for an entire property without giving any prior knowledge to the rest of the tenants I was enquiring as to whether there is any difference compared to a standard notice to quit?
