Section 8 and Joint Tenants
I rented a property to joint tenants (couple) who are now in a statutory periodic tenancy. Approximately about two months ago one of them was arrested and ordered not to go anywhere near the property or to have and links with the remaining tenant in the property.
More recently, the rent owing is more than two months in arrears and I want to serve a section 8 notice. The question is: Do I put both the tenants names on the notice, or do I only put the name of the tenant who is residing at the property and if I need to serve the notice on both of them, do I use two separate section 8 forms?
Further to the above, I do not have any contact details of the tenant that has left the property and he would not be able to go to the property to check his mail so, do I still serve the notice at the address that was rented to the joint tenants?
I have only been informed of the arrest and court order from the remaining tenant and have no reason not to believe her.
Another question that arises is, if the tenant who is no longer residing at the property is still responsible for the rent and any other related costs that may arise in respect of the tenancy?
Thanks in advance for any guidance offered
