Having recently let a two-bedroom flat to a young couple through my local letting agent, the tenants have recently moved in another person to the second bedroom.
My letting agent says this new person, who would not pass their vetting procedure and was moved in without my knowledge or consent, needs to be on the lease as a Permitted Occupier and that the rent should marginally increase (in this case by 5.3%).
However, the tenants have been resisting this saying they are renting a two-bedroom flat and should not have to pay more.
Where does a landlord stand with a non-permitted occupier?
