Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What type of tenancy do you have and does the landlord live in?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
It's a lodger agreement. It's a little sketchy. As I pay cash every month. The landlord lives with me. He did not give a reason why to end the contract early.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They only accept cash, the drafted a lodger agreement that is a yearly. It ends November 23, 2015.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
On the terms it says that early termination either party needs to give a notice of 4 weeks.
Should I ask for my deposit protection number?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
In that case you are not entitled to 2 months, that is only for an assured shorthold tenancy where the landlord does not live in. Therefore sadly the Landlord can give 4 weeks.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Hi Alex,The lodger agreement is with the mom of the house owner. The mom put down 100,000 deposit on the house. But from what I am told daughter is the home owner and house is in her name. I have been paying her mom due to her down payment. So technically the daughter has the power right?
Also- I pay cash, shouldn't I ask for the deposit security number?
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
Yes you can ask for the deposit number. He agreement can be with the mom or owner.
