I have found myself in the situation that the parents of the family I am renting to are in the process of splitting up, and the paying tenant (the wife) is leaving, leaving the husband who, due to circumstances, cannot pay and is refusing to leave at the same time as his wife.

She insists that as she is giving notice for herself, that she is absolving herself from any further liability.

The wife seems to believe that the rent is her husband's problem, but I have told her that as the tenancy is a joint one, she is liable for the rent if her husband won't pay, even though she doesn't live there any more.

Am I right in this, or is she able to serve notice for just herself?

Cheers,
Paul
