We will agree to amend your tenancy following a name change, as long as you can provide sufficient legal evidence. This can be provided by a deed poll, marriage certificate or civil partnership documentation.
End a Joint Tenancy
To end the tenancy, we need to receive a valid written Notice to Quit from one or both parties.
Sole to Joint Tenancies
We usually agree to the creation of a joint tenancy between a spouse or partner. Each case is considered on its own merits. Permission will normally be granted unless:
- There has been a breach of the tenancy agreement, especially if this is due to rent arrears or anti-social behaviour
- If a Notice of Seeking Possession has been served, where proceedings have been commenced or where a court has made an order for possession, whether outright, suspended or postponed
- Spouse/partner is under 18 years of age
- Partner has lived in the property for less than 12 months
Tenant’s partner/spouse must be able to provide sufficient evidence of occupancy.
