Consent to Allow a Temporary Guest to Stay With Your Tenant
Sometimes tenants wish to have a friend or guest over for more than a night or so, but all the same, temporarily, they don't want the guest to be a tenant.
This template letter gives consent to allow a guest but under strict conditions to ensure no tenancy is implied or granted to the guest inadvertently. If the guest wishes to become a tenant (if their stay turns more permanent), the guest may contact the landlord to instigate the usual procedure for granting a tenancy.
The template is in Rich Text Format so that it will work with most word processors, including Word. The template can be modified to suit your own needs.
Important: To avoid doubt, this template will do nothing more than offer evidence of the party's intentions. If you do some other action or allow a guest to remain for more than a temporary period, it may be that you will impliedly grant a tenancy to the guest without even realising. This will ultimately be a matter for the courts, but this letter alone will not necessarily be definitive evidence. We always like names to match, so whenever possible, it is always best to ensure that any person who is to be a tenant is named as such on the tenancy agreement (for example, children don't usually need naming, but all other people would typically need naming on the contract)—having people living on your property who are not named as tenants are dangerous and could cause severe problems if you ever require possession.
