Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

I have a couple who are on an ongoing AST. They have been in the house for one year now and they have just said they want to have a daughter to stay from September to November. She is unemployed and is 21 years old.
I phoned the R L A for advice and I was informed that I could be subletting and that my building insurance could be void if there was a serious claim, say like a fire.
My concern is twofold 1) am I in breach of the insurance and 2) I would now have a 3 rd person using my 2 bedroom house which would increase the wear and tear on it and my guess is that she would stay longer than November as Christmas is coming
Any ideas please
