    Can my friend live with me in shared ownership for free?

    If my friend will be living with me in my shared ownership flat and not paying me any money is this treated as sub-letting or lodger? I just want to live with him and dont want any money.

    The lease says "The Leaseholder is not permitted to sub-let or part with possession of the property in any other way until the Lease holder staircases to 100% ownership of the property"

    Thank you for an answer in advance

    Can, please, anyone answer my question?


      Yes, you can.


        Not sure whether having a flat-share is deemed as a 'sub-let', you tried searching LVT decisions for similar scenarios ?

        Advice given is based on my experience representing myself as a leaseholder both in the County Court and at Leasehold Valuation Tribunals.

        I do not accept any liability to you in relation to the advice given.

        It is always recommended you seek further advice from a solicitor or legal expert.

        Always read your lease first, it is the legally binding contract between leaseholder and freeholder.
