Hi, I am about to start a new tenancy and am hoping for some advice please.

My prospective tenant is separated (or divorced) from her husband who will act as guarantor. She has a 16 year old daughter who will be with her half the time. She has a boyfriend who works away during the week but will likely stay with her during the weekends and some holidays.

QUESTION: Should the boyfriend be mentioned on the Tenancy Agreement, either as a joint tenant or just an occupant, or not at all? How about the 16 year old daughter?

We are about to start credit checks on the prospective tenant, husband guarantor and boyfriend to cover all the angles but it is feeling a bit complicated.

Any answers to the above question or other advice would be much appreciated,
