I don't think they would technically be a lodger. The studio flat is on the 1st floor of my maisonette. I live on the second floor .The studio has it's own council tax band on the grounds that the studio has it's own kitchen and bathroom. There is only one boiler for the whole property (in my kitchen) - the tenant would need to come to my kitchen on the second floor to switch on heating outside normal times when it is on. We share the same front door - so any tenant would be able to enter my living space by walking up the stairs to the second floor. Would this situation still enable me to advertise for a female tenant? Many thanks Karen
