If 2 people are sharing a prop and both names are on the AST, what happens if one leaves early and a replacement is found. I dont want to start a new AST as the one that remains is a pain and I want her out also. Can the new person just take over the leavers obligations for the balance of the term with the use of a 'side letter'?

Footnote: the leaver is paying for the period between her leaving and the new tennant coming in.

Any advice will be appreciated.
