    Tenant moved in family member

    My tenant has moved in her daughter and child without my permission on an AST, they have also moved in two pets both issues violate the lease. What are my options?

    What happens if they refuse to sign the lease?

      When did your named tenant move in, when did last fixed term start, was that tenancy signed & do you have a copy?

      Does tenancy agreement prohibit other human occupants? If so yes, you can serve s8g12 but doubt any judge would evict for just that. When does fixed term end please?


      PLEASE don;t make changes to tenancy (until we better understand), it might be decided you've established a new tenancy so no s21 for 6 months etc etc etc..

        You still haven't explained where this lease that they may have refused to sign comes from. Whilst the tenancy agreement is a lease it confused people to all it that, and, in any case there is no legal requirement to sign it, unless one party makes it a condition of the contract.

          I'm confused when people say that they're putting the rent up depending on occupants. I just rent whole properties out, be that to a singleton, couple or family, it's advertised and let out at one price.

            Next time 6 months not 12.

            You have a tenant: They have broken the contract/lease. Why on earth would you reward them for this by offering a new lease/contract? DON'T!

            Issue s8 today and write (separately) to tenant instructing them to remove other humans & pets. You need to be seen to do this to avoid criminal record/fines for overcrowding.

            PLEASE don't give them a new deal!

              Did the tenant rent a property with spare bedrooms?

              If you had a single tenant renting a 2 or 3 property, then alarm bells should have been ringing during the referencing phase. People should have been asking why does she need the extra accommodation?

              Is is a temporary measure or permanent? Is the property property overcrowded with these extra residents?. If it is overcrowded, do you really want to sign a new contract?

              The pets will lead to increased wear and tear.
