This Lodger creates a licence for a lodger to occupy a room (or rooms) within a property and is different to a tenancy agreement in that it does not create the same rights for a lodger as a tenant would have under a tenancy agreement.
It’s also important to bear in mind that if the lodger is not sharing any common parts of the property, their rights may be the same as those of a tenant or excluded occupant of the property, and this may require a court order prior to eviction if the lodger does not wish to vacate.
This agreement is essential if you are considering renting out a room in your property and want to ensure that both parties are clearly aware of their rights and responsibilities.
The agreement generally includes details such as duration, the amount of rent, the lodger’s right to occupy the room and any other terms and conditions that will be agreed between the two parties.
It is important to ensure that both parties understand their rights and obligations before signing a Lodger Agreement. Having a legally binding Lodger Agreement in place provides the homeowner with peace of mind that the lodger is aware of their responsibilities and can help to protect both parties from potential disputes in the future.
It is important to ensure that the agreement is up to date and in line with UK law.
Our Lodger Agreement is designed to be legally compliant in the UK and covers the key terms and clauses necessary for a successful and secure tenancy.
The key terms and clauses include:
• The amount of rent payable and the date on which it must be paid.
• The length of the tenancy and the notice period required to terminate the agreement.
• The lodger’s right to occupy the room and any restrictions on the use of the property.
• The lodger’s responsibilities in relation to the property, such as keeping it clean and tidy.
• Any other terms and conditions that both parties agree to.
It is important to note that whilst a Lodger Agreement is not legally required, it is highly recommended. Without a legally binding agreement in place, both parties may be at risk of disputes and misunderstandings in the future.
Our Lodger Agreement is designed to provide homeowners with peace of mind that their rights are protected and that the lodger is aware of their obligations. Get your legal Lodger Agreement today and ensure your rights are protected.
