Can my boyfriend be my landlord and I still claim tax credit ?

Hi all. New to this. My boyfriend (who has his own home) is considering renting his other house to me and my children. He will get a proper agreement drawn up and all the bills and rent will be in my name only. He will not live with us (but may stay over a night or 2 a week, when my kids go to their dads) . 
If we are not officially living together and he has he own house where he lays all his own bills, will I still be able to claim the tax credits I get as a single person?
