    Lodger agreement

    Hi I am a live in landlord and plan to let my two spare rooms downstairs on a lodger basis both of these rooms have on suite bathrooms

    As both down stairs rooms have on suites and the kitchen (shared with myself) is downstairs the lodgers will not need to come up stairs of the property .

    can I put in the lodger agreement that the lodgers only have use of the downstairs of the property so I can retain some privacy upstairs ?

    i will still share the entrance hallway and kitchen and rear garden?

    Why not put locks on upstairs rooms?And ensure privacy in kitchen by donning a disguise!

      Yes, you can.

      When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
      Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).

        en suite, not on suite..

        You can put whatever you wish. Where are you getting lodger agreement from, please?
        I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

          If you have unrestricted access then the lodger will be excluded occupier, with limited protection (ie you don't need a court order for eviction), once you identify areas that the lodger or you can enter, then they become occupiers with basic protection (ie, you need a court order for eviction).

            They'll still be sharing the kitchen, so they'll be a lodger regardless.
