Buy to Let

Property118 | Residents association seems to have taken against students

I have a Buy to Let flat which is part of a complex which is currently let to two international students.

However the residents association seems to have taken against students being able to rent these flats and is quoting the below clause in the lease: –

“Not to use the Demised Premises or permit the same to be used for any other purpose whatsoever other than as a self-contained private dwelling for residential purposes only for one family or household in single occupation”

The argument being that students do not constitute a family or household. We are curious to know how two student friends sharing would differ from a professional un-married couple or two employed friends sharing.

Many thanks

Andrew
