Can One Person Break a Two-Person Lease?

Co-tenants are jointly liable for paying rent and fulfilling the terms of the tenancy. This means that a landlord can seek the total amount of rent from any of the co-tenants, and each co-tenant must adhere to the lease agreement. However, if one co-tenant breaks their lease a landlord can choose to terminate the tenancy.
