    Tenants Girlfriend

    Hello, first post! So my tenant has moved his girlfriend in for a few months now, which I agreed to for an extra £90 a month on his rent. He is paying rent on time etc but I have not received the £90 for his girlfriend. Have texted him and have been told I will get the money but still waiting. He wants to leave his soon that the planned contract date. Any advice on what or how I can demand the money?

    Thanks

    IMO not much you can do unless T has paid £90 rent increase, or you served vaid s13 notice of rent increase , effective after 12 months.
    T is entitled to have a lonn term term 'guest' to stay, but her prolonged occupation may increase the FW&T of that expected of your sole T.
    We need more details of your AST with T (see FAGs 'infor required from ner posters'

      Does the local council have the g/f down as living at that address?

        It's not clear if T & gf are living inthe house with you, or in a HMO.

        If living with you give them 24 hours notice.

        If in a HMO - are they causing overcrowding?

        I put in my HMO TAs something like " any guests will be charged at £25 per night. The Tenant is responsible for payment." This is in the HMOs with less than 5 people and has to be agreed with the LL beforehand becasue if everyone had a guest on the same night there could be 8 people in the house!

          If you are going to allow her to live there I would want ID and a credit check at least!

            Errr... how (email, verbal, new tenancy agreement..) did you agree the rent change: And it he is "paying rent on time" then unless you've granted a new tenancy to the g/f he, the tenant, shoudl pay everything including the £90 extra. How he gets it or not from g/f is his problem..

            Was the rent change notified through an S13 notice? If not, I fear it is unenforceable, unless tenant had started paying the new amount.
            .
            What does
            He wants to leave his soon that the planned contract date.
            - I'm confused...

            The only enforceable way of handing this would be to grant a new tenancy to him (or both of them) for the new amount or via s13 notice. Probably too late - he doesn't have to agree a new tenancy & could challenge s13.

            In your shoes I'd issue s21, evict & get new tenants.

            Cheers!
