It is often wondered, if a property is let to a family, whether a landlord should include the children on a tenancy agreement if they are aged eighteen or over (the legal age for a person to enter into a contract). If the children over eighteen are still in full-time education, there is no real need to include them on the agreement, as they will have no stable income. If, however, the children are in full time employment, and living at home, it will be prudent to include them on the agreement as the landlord will then have additional people to chase for outstanding rent etc. As regards repossession, if the grown-up children are not on the agreement, and repossession is sought, the contract is with the parents and it will be up to them to move the children out of the property. If they are included on the contract, they must be included on any notice, and they take the same position as their parents.
