Short scenario – Tenant is asking for a partner to move in. I won’t offer a joint tenancy as the incoming person has not been in a job long enough to warrant this (still in 6 month probation period) and even then she won’t be able to afford the full rent herself.
The existing tenant has openly said she trusts her partner and is fully aware of this and the financial implications, and she can pay the rent now anyway and is settled.
IF, I decide to list the partner on the AST can I do this as an amendment to the AST (how would I do that?) or would I have to draft a new AST from scratch, so having to do all the paperwork that involves?
I am aware I cannot put up the rent to accommodate for this Permitted Occupier (as this would be seen as charging her the ‘extra’ rent and that in itself is a minefield) so how would I go about this?
Or is it better to stay clear of this Permitted Occupier entirely – as someone once said ANY occupier that you are aware of and agree to is still an occupier and will inevitably be a legal process of some description to get them out if they do not leave at the same time as the actually named tenant?
Anyone had any experiences of Permitted Occupier and how to accommodate in an existing AST?
