Hi, my joint tenants have decided to split up 5 months into a 12 month tenancy agreement.

One of them wants to keep the tenancy on as a sole tenant.
The other wants to be released from the tenancy.

I have no problem with that as long as the sole tenant can afford the rent (she will probably be eligible for benefits as they have a child together).

I wonder what the mechanics of this change are.

Do I have to end the 12 month joint tenancy early and set up another one in the sole tenant's name?

OR can I just add something on to the original tenancy agreement to update for this change?
