If they live with you and they share the same bathroom and kitchen then they are lodgers and you can use a lodger agreement or a licence agreement one that expressly states the agreement is not an "assured shorthold" tenancy.

BLA have several licence and lodger agreements you can use.

The property is currently empty and the landlords live in Scotland now (house is in Oxfordshire) so the Ukrainians could not be classed as lodgers, more like guests. But they want to sponsor the family and are prepared to offer the house. Just want some protection to be on the safe side. Government rules say min 6 months but it’s not clear what would happen if landlords needed the house back then or, say, 9-12 months’ time.<br /> Local letting agent has refused to manage the property, even for normal fees, as rent is not being paid!
