7. Joint tenancies

Tenancies can be granted to two or more (up to a maximum of four) people.  These are called joint tenancies.  

If you are a joint tenant you should be aware that each tenant is jointly and separately liable for the obligations under the tenancy agreement.

If one of the joint tenants ends the tenancy the rights of the other tenants will end and they must leave the property, other than in exceptional circumstances.
