This document grants permission to one or more people to occupy a room in your home under the terms agreed. It should only be used where the landlord will live in the same property as the lodger.
You do not have to have a formal written legal agreement with your lodger, but having one serves as a useful reference point should any dispute occur in the future.
Whether you’re renting a room to a friend for a month or two, or wanting a long term lodger, there are practical and legal advantages of having the rental terms in writing.
