Agreed - probably worth changing both cables as if one has gone the other will be suspect...they aren't ridiculously expensive - under £20 each if you check around.....
If doing the job yourself - back off the adjuster on the handbrake (peel the gaitor back and you'll find it underneath), replace both rear cables, ensuring that the levers on the calipers are fully back against the stops, then adjust the handbrake lever until you get the correct amount of movement -around 4 clicks is about right.....
