I have a three-bedroom flat and the single room does not meet the council’s new imposed minimum room size of 7.1 square meters and so does not meet the licensing criteria.
I have 3 students from China who want to rent the flat who say they are related (cousins) so they meet the single household criteria. How can I prove this so that I protect myself from any potential prosecution by the council, rent repayment order or not being able to serve a S21 notice should the tenants turn round during the tenancy and say they are not related after all?
Have others asked tenants to sign a letter at the start of the tenancy confirming they meet the definition of a single household?
