Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Will the Landlord agree?
This is because they are not related to you.
If it was your spouse then the Council could add this person.
But as a general friend who is living with you, they have no standing to be added.
That doesn't mean they can't live with you - of course they can.
But are not entitled to be on your tenancy
I am sorry if this is not the answer you are after and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
