Simply put the verbiage in your lease...that lists each tenant by name
Followed by the notation. "Jointly and severably"

What that means is....they are both responsible for the total rent...and yet, it gives you the option to pursue both of them (jointly) or just go after one only (severably) for the total rent.

That is the legal way to do this. Leaves you with the options and keeps both in the hook.. the old line from Sam Adams comes to mind..."we hang together, or we WILL hang separately".
