    breach of tenancy agreement.

    I am using a letting agency. When they found me a tenant the tenancy was created in one name, now his girlfriend has moved in and the agency has not added her name to the agreement. Would this be classed as a breach of tenancy?

    It wouldn't bother me. Are you looking for a reason to kick him out?

      Well, I live abroad, and the tenants girlfriend has been causing quite a few problems with neighbours. The police have been called twice. And she goes down the road knocking on doors, drunk , asking for help. I was home once time when the police were called. I am worried about the safety of my house eg fire, she uses a lot of candles!

        As a Scottish Landlord you will be aware that YOU (yes, YOU! - agent also perhaps) are responsible for anti-social behaviour that happens at their properties

        & if you don't sort it out it can get painful, including rent being withheld from you.

        Please confirm you and the property are registered.

        You should ensure you/agent have written (yes, WRITTEN!) to tenant about this matter - see advice here..

        - keep copies. In your shoes I would also write to local police, & council housing dept to state you have been informed of possible issue, are addressing it, and hoping to be able to rely on their support.

        In your shoes I'd also issue notice to quit & AT6 for breach of tenancy conditions (you'd need to check which apply, probably grounds 14, 14, 15) and also if initial term ended a "no fault" NTQ etc..

        Do the terms of your agreement with agency state they should out this sort of issue ? Suggest you read it!
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...
