Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I have 2 HMOs that I rent out to ‘professional Tenants’ I took one tenant who is on a very low income but had her rent paid 5 months in advance by her parents who have moved overseas.
Her fixed term ends in June and I have requested on-going 2 months rent in advance since their daughter is still on a low income.
They state that I can only ask for one month? I plan to amend the AST and gain signatures stating rent to be paid 2 months in advance post fixed term, but do not think I am being unreasonable requesting advance payments for a young tenant alone in the UK with very little income as she is doing an apprenticeship so almost half student/half professional.
Any advice please?
