    Ending a Lodger License early due to lodger breaking terms of contract.

    Hey there,

    I have a lodger living with me at the moment and they have broken terms of the agreement on four separate occasions. Firstly on the first rent payment which was two weeks late, they did not pay the full amount which I had to keep asking for and secondly in my lodger agreement it states that they have to ask me the landlord permission before letting anyone stay over the night and which they have let someone stay on three separate occasions without even notifying me let alone asking my permission.

    I have looked up and it would seem that I can terminate their contract with less than the notice agreed on the contract as the have violated terms of the contract. Is this correct?

    Any help would be great!

    I will be giving 28 days notice to leave which is less that the notice on the agreement but due to his violation of terms 28 days notice is fair no?

    Also the person who stays, stays in the house when he is not here, they are here all day and they dont live here which is making me uncomfortable in my own house.

    You have to give them "Reasonable notice".
    In real terms, I would give 7 days and then change the locks when they leave the house.

    What notice did you put? If more than 28 days, you are being extremely lenient.
    I would put "28 days" as a maximum.

      It was a long term agreement for which 6 months notice was to be given but as he has broken the terms on more than once occasion i believe it to invalidate the agreement right? So giving 28 days which is classed as fair notice is acceptable?

        Six months notice!

        Are you Maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaddddd?

        Just give them 28 days, and let them argue otherwise.
