I have a tenant who at the moment is living alone in my 3 bedroom house. In order to relieve the strain on his finances, he would like a friend to share the house and the bills with him.
I do not object in principle, but do not want to start a new tenancy agreement as I would be stuck with them for 6 months if they do not pay the rent.
As he has been a tenant for 8 months now, I can evict any time. He is not behind with the rent, but lives very much hand to mouth. I would much prefer his friend to go on the existing AST.
However, I do not know if this is possible and have not found any information about it so far. Does anyone know if I can have an amendment to the existing AST with an extra name on it?
Also, am I right in thinking that 2 people sharing a house in separate bedrooms does not constitute a HMO?
