I need some advice.
I’m living alone in a 1BR flat, rented on a 12 month contract.
Now, my girlfriend (long-distance) wants to come to London to study here for 12 weeks.
We would like to live together during that time, so she would basically move in with me while she is here.
As far as the tenancy agreement goes:
a) It only has my name on it
b) It says the property shall be used as a private dwelling for Tenant and immediate family (does a girlfriend count into that?)
b) It says I am not allowed to sublet and I am not allowed to make any commercial gain by having another person stay at the property.
Now my questions:
1) Are we allowed to do that? Can she stay legally?
2) Should I tell the Landlord? If I do and he says no, then I have a problem
3) Is there a way to put my GF on the lease for those 12 weeks, or kind of make an addendum so that everything has a better legal grounding? If so I could take that to my Landlord and I am quite sure that he would be fine with it.
Thanks for the help
