I WANT A LODGER AGREEMENT


Letting a room in your home can be the answer to a number of problems – but it is best entered into with all parties knowing where they stand.  As with all Law for Life documents, we’ve done the law stuff for you – all you have to do is complete the simple plain English questionnaire on line and your agreement will be drafted automatically.  If you have any questions – give us a call – it’s free and we’re here to help.  We’re a real law firm with well over a century of legal expertise between us.

  • This agreement is for renting out a room or rooms in your own home  –  a ‘lodger’ type arrangement.
  • The agreement is for a single ‘lodger’, so if you want to let more than one room, you will need more than one agreement.
  • This document creates a licence for the lodger to occupy not a lease, so it can be bought to an end much easier than under a tenancy agreement.
  • The agreement covers the right to occupy a room only – if you want the agreement to cover the provision of room and additional services such as cleaning, laundry or breakfast, then use the document linked to “I want to let a room on a serviced basis”.
  • Our online completion system will guide you through completing the document in plain English.
  • If you do not have all the details you need, you can complete it as far as possible, save it and come back to it when you have all the details.

If you intend to provide services such as laundry, breakfast or cleaning in addition to a room, then click here for a more suitable agreement.

  • This agreement covers the provision of services in addition to a licence granting the right to occupy a room in a landlord’s home.
  • In such situations it is a licence to occupy rather than a lease which is granted
  • A licence can be bought to an end easier than a lease
  • The agreement also provides for a ‘guarantor’ to guarantee payment of rent, but there is no need to use this section if no guarantor is required.
