Hello,

The company is a separate legal entity from its workmen. The tenant is currently the company, not the workmen.

If the workmen are to become the new tenants (as they will be paying the rent), then the current AST agreement should be terminated by mutual consent between landlord and company and a new one issued to the workmen in their personal names.

Hope this helps
