My tenants have requested my permission to rent out a spare bedroom to a lodger.
I have three tenants, a husband and wife and the husbands brother renting a 2 bed 2 bath flat from me. However, the brother has moved out.
They are currently on a periodic tenancy and have decided they can’t really afford the rent on there own, hence their request for permission to let the second bedroom to a lodger.
If I say no then they will have no other choice but to give me notice.
Should I allow this?
If so do I need to create a new tenancy or can I just leave them on periodic and do a letter to them explaining that they are responsible for any damages caused by there lodger?
Should I insist upon them using a specific type of lodgers agreement?
Thanks for your advice.
