Government forcing landlords to house non-paying tenants for lengthy periods11:18 AM, 15th September 2020

I have an AST with three tenants, a married couple who have just had a baby and a cousin who is related. They are nice tenants but in the first month of tenancy the cousin has now moved in his wife and child. This was done while I was on holiday.
It seems this is going to be permanent as they are already checking out admission procedures for their son at the local primary school. It is somewhat annoying as I originally set up the tenancy for three tenants plus new baby.
I am not too concerned as the tenants pay their rent on time but I am concerned about landlord insurance implications and the fact that I have not seen any identification papers, passport etc. immigration papers etc for the wife and son.
The house has three bedrooms so there does not appear to be an overcrowding issue.
As a landlord I would like to know what I can do to ensure I get the appropriate information from the new family members in a sensible manner to ensure that I am covered legally and that my actions are not seen as harassment. I have asked for the information but it has not appeared.
