Reply To: Shared rate


Thanks pbirks – I did omit that the agreement also refers to them as a lodger as well!

Our thinking behind restricting it – whilst waiting on additional info like the visit – was that there is nothing that prevents the landlord from using the facilities that the tenant supposedly has sole use of. The agreement contradicts itself – it sales sole use but not exclusive possession; states rooms and access is shared with the licensor; there’s a verbal agreement to not enter the ‘basement flat’ between those hours; the bathroom is accessible to anyone wandering down the corridor – as is the living room/kitchen and bedroom.

It’s because there’s a grey area in the set-up of the terms of the occupancy that when looking at 13D (2) (b) (i) & (ii) does state exclusive – which the agreement speciifcally says they do not have 😐
