End a joint tenancy
If you have a joint tenancy, the whole tenancy will end if you or another joint tenant ends it.
If one of the joint tenants decides to end the tenancy, the remaining tenant won't have an automatic right to keep living in the property. If this happens, we will decide whether we can help the remaining person to find another council home. We will make our decision in line with the current allocation policy.
If you wish to end your joint tenancy, we strongly recommend that you get independent legal advice first.
If you keep living in the property after a joint tenant has ended the tenancy, we call this "unauthorised occupation".
