Hi Sharon- the tenancy agreement permits 3 people to live at the property. Whilst you are permutted a guest to stay occasionally, having another person live at the property is a breach of contract. The rent level yu already pay is not relevant as that was a figure you agreed to pay however that was based on 3 people. It is very common for Landlords to ask for more rent for more people as there will be more wear & tear on the property which a Landlord cannot claim from a Tenant. As such, you will need to agree a sum with the Landlord or your boyfriend will need to move out.

Hope that helps
