names on tennancy

20 Nov 2020 | 1 comment

I have a gentleman moving in tomorrow.

He will be joined hopefully by his wife and son from mid december, who are currently overseas.

Question do i just just put his name on tenancy with his wife and son as permitted occupiers.?

Then after a successful 6 months I could do a new agreement with them both

OR include both husband and wife as tenants and son as a permitted occupier?


This agreement will be physically signed tomorrow there will be no digital signatures involved.


Best wishes,

    The ideal would have been to put both as named tenants and then signed remotely. There only needs one of joint tenants to occupy to render the tenancy valid. Problem here is that if you’re signing in person, presumably you won’t be able to get the other party signature (unless they’re all here tomorrow and returning). If you can only get one signature then guess your only option is to put it in the sole tenant name because you need the signatures to match the names.

    The son can be just named as a permitted occupier because he’s not likely to be a tenant in the sense liable for rent etc.
