I have a property that is currently rented to a single tenant under a standard AST. The tenant has found someone to share the property and was wondering what is the best way to form agreements with both tenants - joint AST for whole property or single AST for both tenants room only with shared facilities?
My concerns are what happens if they don't pay the utility bills, council tax, etc - will I be liable. Also, it will leave the rent short if one of them leaves and cannot find another sharer.
Any advice would be helpful.
