Thank you for your query.
So the main difference between a tenant and a lodger is that a lodger usually lives in the same property as the Landlord. By contrast, a tenant is someone who pays rent for a property you own but do not live in. Further, tenant's have more rights than lodgers which are covered in a tenancy agreement.
Please could you elaborate
You can however allowing someone to occupy a room during the licence period is not unusual.
What is important is the licencee's obligations in the agreement which should be limited.
Yes it does.
Yes we can have a chat and will be charged extra by Just Answer I believe (Experts have no control over charges on this site).
There should be a pop-up mentioning a phone call – this is an automatic offer made by the system, giving you the opportunity to pay extra to discuss things over the phone.
I can do it on my end don't worry.
The amount is displayed on your screen above.
See it now?
Well there should either be a pop-up mentioning a phone call. Alternatively, you can post a Phone Call request through the site.
Please kindly refer to the sites Terms of Service.
I would be grateful for a 5 star rating at the top of your screen for my time. It is important to leave a rating as is how Experts are are credited for their time.
All the best.
Yes, we can still do this via this chat.
That's fine no problem.
Hi there, yes just about see the document.
As this is a detailed document, what in particular would you like me to look at? I will not be able to review the entire agreement.
Ok, what would you describe as reasonable contribution at clause 15? This needs to be clear as this could be disputed.
Take out if they are included.
Or make is specifically clear that bills are included.
I would suggest that you have a provision for loss of keys to the property. Not to make any copies and bear any reasonable costs incurred by you for any replacements.
1. not to make a copy of the set of keys provided by the Licensor;
2. if the Licensee loses the keys , to notify the Licensor without delay, and bear the costs reasonably incurred of replacement keys and locks;
Change where is says Landlord to Licensor.
Take out clause 4, it does not make sense.
Are you happy for the Licencee to smoke?
Insert a clause for them not to smoke in the property.
Yes, please insert a clause that they should not.
Whats your view on guests?
Please insert :)
After the above, its a good agreement.
Smoking is prohibited...
You've said not prohibited.
Kindly leave a positive rating for my time today. :)
It appears to be fine :)
Yes, you have specified this clearly in your agreement.
I would be grateful for a positive rating at this stage. Don't worry, this chat will stay open for any follow up questions!
