Hi I own a two bedroom flat and rent it out to one person, Marcia. She then sublets the second bedroom to a person of her choice, although I do insist on meeting her choice before they move in so I can assess them. I have a standard shorthold tenancy agreement with Marcia. What agreement does Marcia need with her housemate and what agreement do I need with her housemate - or is there an agreement I need with both of them. I don't want to be in the position where someone is living in my property with no signed contract between us. The housemate pays rent and deposit direct to Marcia.
I did ask in my original question - what agreement Marcia would need with her housemate? I have been using a house share agreement with landlord not resident at another property but that wouldn't apply as Marcia is not the landlord?
