Can you explain why your partners name has come to be included on the tenancy agreement - did you not prepare it? If so, who did?
Please also state whether he has contributed to the mortgage repayments on the property, the household expenses if you have been living there or if he has financed any capital expenditure on the property (eg. building an extension or other expensive works).
Why does the agent think that the partner should be listed as landlord? Do you suppose that he has assumed that your partner is co-owner because of his dealings with him and perhaps because of some off-hand reference to "our house"?
I hadn't actually answered your question yet.
If you are the sole registered proprietor of the property and neither of you occupy the property as your residence then your name should be on the tenancy agreement only so, yes, I would get them to amend that.
If you are not married, named as the sole registered proprietor of the property (I can tell you how to check this if you wish) at the land registry and you partner has not contributed to the mortgage repayments, the financing of the purchase of the property or spent considerable capital monies on improving the property then he is highly unlikely to he able to make a claim on the property and would be very unwise to attempt to do so.
