I am looking to rent a property in the UK. The property

Customer Question

Hi,
I am looking to rent a property in the UK. The property will be used as a residential property but I would like to start a business from the spare room.
I asked the landlord whether I can register a company at the address and told him that there will be no clients or business visitors, no money or no storage of any goods etc in the property.
The landlord said it was impossible under the current standard tenancy agreements.

Is that correct?
Thank you
Georges
