Joint Tenancy to Single Tenancy
I have a flat which is currently rented to a couple with a 2 month old baby.
they have been tenants since 13-4-2016 she was pregnant at the time.
The male tenant is the lead tenant and the deposit is in the DPS.
I receive their housing benefit directly from the Council as they were previously
The female has decided to leave and take the baby.
The male tenant wants to stay on and have a single tenancy.
Can I ask DPS to transfer the deposit directly into a new tenancy in the male tenants' name?
Any other comments or tips would also be welcome.
