When a tenancy comes to an end you have several options.

1. If the current tenant is staying, and the details of the lease are remaining the same you can simply change the lease end date in the system.

2. If the tenant is staying on but the lease details are substantially changing, for example, the rent amount is changing or the rent due date is changing you may want to end the current lease, create a new lease against the property and relink the tenant.

3. If the current tenant decides to move out. Then you should not, in this case, unlink the current tenant. Instead, you need to end the current lease and create a new lease before adding or linking the new tenant to this new lease.

The advantage of creating a new lease in the system is that it allows you to keep all your historic data neatly organized and associated with the relevant tenant information.
