I'm going away for a few months on a research post and I'm letting a friend stay in my room for some of the time in which I'm away, as she's having a bit of a tough time at the moment and has no other place to stay. I won't be taking any money from her during this time. I have an assured shorthold tenancy agreement, which specifies that I'm not allowed to sublet the property. I was wondering whether allowing someone to stay in my room counts as subletting even if I'm not taking any money from them, and therefore whether the landlord would have grounds to evict me?
If it helps, the clause from the agreement reads: 'The Tenant will not transfer this tenancy or, sublet, charge or part with or share possession of the whole or any part of the Accommodation, take in lodgers, or share occupation of the Accommodation with any person, other than an overnight guest for a maximum stay of 3 consecutive nights'
