I have a friend staying with me in my two bedroom flat. The agency want to add him onto the lease however this is not a permanent arrangement and no money is changing hands. Do they legally have a right to force me to add the person onto the lease?
Is my deposit at risk if I refuse.
Rent and deposit is my responsibility and is always on time.
