    How about a compromise; note the newcomer as a "Permitted Occupier" which acknowledges his occupancy but not his tenancy rights.

    It will not be an HMO as they will be related sharers (conjugal/married) comprising only one household.
    I believe it will be if the original two tenants are unrelated!
    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not quite sure!

    If current tenants are already related it will not be a HMO (ie remain 1 household).

    If current tenants are un related, it wlll go from:

    2 individuals forming 2 households (not HMO) to
    3 individuals forming 2 households (HMO)

    RE post #10, you don't need to issue a new agreement, the law (section 5, 1988 Housing Act) creates a periodic one anyway.

    Thanks. So the current two tenants are unrelated, and the third person will be related (eventually by marriage).

    Looking at http://www.direct.gov.uk/en/homeandc...ards/dg_189200, it seems this now forms an HMO.

    Providing the council has no additional stipulations in terms of licensing, what does this mean for a landlord's responsibility?

    Well there is this:
    http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2.../contents/made
    and this:
    http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/forums...cense-required

    so (subject to licensing requirements) it's not too onerous.
