Are you going to remain the person responsible for all the rent Will your friends simply pay you to stay there - or do you wish them to have the same rights as you

I will have no contract with them pay cash and that's it . I will be responsible for the house and I will deal with the owner. But this will need to be done according to the law and according to cancil so the owner won't have any trouble

Then it will be safer if your take the other two people on as Lodgers.This means that you remain in full control of the house and who lives there.There is also no risk of the House being identified as being a "House in Multiple Occupation" which would cause serious problems for your Landlord.You can read about having lodgers herehttps://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/housing/renting-a-home/subletting-and-lodging/lodging/what-rights-do-lodgers-have/and herehttps://www.gov.uk/rent-room-in-your-home/becoming-a-resident-landlordand you can find a lodging agreement herehttp://www.crisis.org.uk/data/files/Private_Rented_Sector/Sharing_Solutions/Crisis_Template_Lodger_Agreement.pdfPlease ask if you need further details
