I would like to know where I stand legally. Have you seen my query?
Yes, I want to know whether I am liable and also what I should do so that she picks up her stuff as soon as possible so that I can rent the room to someone else.
The contract we signed, was a licence to occupy as a lodger, not a tenant. As I understood it, lodgers have less rights and landlords can indeed go to their rooms to check them. She has no proof that we signed a contract, nor does she have the keys.
I don't want to be causing her issues, but is your answer still the same?
What if I asked her to move in for 28 days and serve her a notice?
