A flat we own is currently let to a couple. Recently, the husband phoned me to say that they were divorcing and that he had left the flat and wanted his name taking off the tenancy agreement. Upon asking how the rent would be paid, he said that he would not contribute to it and that his wife would have to claim housing benefit.

I am unsure whether to draw up a new TA in just the wife's name or to leave it as it is - that is, do I have to do one or the other? Is the husband still responsible to pay the rent even if he is not living there? The TA is the standard RLA one and it runs until December.
