I accepted 4 tenants for a new TA. However before I sent the tenants a new contract the lead tenant asked me if I would remove the subletting clause from the contract to which I said no. Then the next day he asked if a friend who was not part of the agreement could visit the house. Being as I haven’t met the tenants yet I found this concerning. What are your thoughts.
all un related or do they SAY they are related? He Is going to sublet . Kick into touch
Unless theyre all related its already an HMO which may or may not be licensable. One more person makes it mandatory licensable.
they have done you a big favour by showing their intentions before the contract is signed!
If you have any doubt, just move on to the next tenant. It’s better to spend extra to find alternative tenant than getting into trouble.
