Remove someone from your Tenancy Agreement

The tenancy agreement is a contract between you and MTVH. The agreement can also be a joint tenancy between two people and MTVH. It is a written document which is signed at the beginning of a tenancy. It sets out your rights and responsibilities. As it’s a legal document, you should keep it safe for future reference.   

Everyone named on the tenancy agreement is responsible for paying the rent and abiding by the tenancy conditions. If one tenant breaks the agreement, named tenants will be held responsible. All tenants have the same rights to live at the property.   

If you want to apply to take over the tenancy due to the death you will need to use the reporting death and taking over a tenancy service.
