Clarification of Tenants named in AST
My AST says the following:
“1.1 This is an agreement for a fixed term assured shorthold tenancy:
Between Jane Smith and John Smith: (“the Landlord”)
and Fred Brown (“the Tenant”)
Tenant 1 Mr. Fred Brown
Tenant 2 Mrs. Brown
- 2 The obligations and liabilities of the parties under this agreement are joint and several.”
Given the above layout and phraseology, are both parties bound by the AST, or only Fred Brown?
Are the obligations and liabilities of the parties joint and several, or is the contract messed up in that regard?
Does the above AST layout affect how I should address or issue my Section 8 notice and / or court Claim Form?
I’m most grateful for advice.... thank you.
