Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
On what basis do you want to know their legal rights?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I wish to give notice to the tenant on the contract
Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
The person occupying the room has no rights whatever. You can give your tenant notice and ask them to leave and the lodger must also leave too. The lodger can't remain and has no rights at all.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Expert:  Ash replied 2 years ago.
No.
No rights whatsoever.
Does that help?
