Renting a spare room is increasingly popular. The key to making sure that you stay in control is that you use the right type of agreement for your circumstances. Our lodger agreements are "licences to occupy", suitable where the landlord lives alongside the lodger. All are drawn by property lawyers, easy to edit and come with full explanatory guidance notes.
Lodger agreements and licences
Use this private boarding agreement to rent a room in your home to one or more people. This agreement creates a licence to use the property, with far fewer legal requirements for the landlord than a lease or a tenancy agreement.
