Fair Rents (Scotland) Bill or Artificial state manipulation of free market rent?10:34 AM, 6th November 2020
About 4 weeks ago 36
I have a tenant who is a single lady on a fixed 12 month agreement who has lived in the property for 2 years. My husband called at the property early this morning to look at her shower and she told him she was happy for him to let himself in as she would be at work.
When he arrived she had left for work but her “gentleman friend” was there and it was obvious that he had been staying there. My husband asked him politely if he was now living there and he replied that he was staying three or four nights a week.
My question then is, do I need to delve further with my tenant to find out if he is living there so I can adjust the tenancy agreement or do I say nothing. What are the implications of somebody else living in the house for half the week? Any advice would be gratefully received.
Many thanks and happy new year to you all!
