Joint and Several Tenancies

Joint tenancies can be agreed upon with two or more people from the outset of the tenancy. Each can then be responsible jointly and severally (individually) for meeting the tenancy terms in full, including paying the rent. This is known as joint and several liability. Joint and several liability only arise where it is agreed upon. If nothing is agreed they will be jointly liable.
