    Help My lodger smokes pot!

    I recently took on a new lodger who seemed really nice, he advised me he had pets but was getting rid of them. But when he had moved in he said he couldn't get rid of he rats. I said it was ok but they must never be let out. A few days later it started to smell but I knew I wasn't a pet smell. So I questioned him about it and he said he smoked pot but only to relax as he can't sleep, and that you can probably smell it. He says he doesn't smoke it in my house but around the block. I have since had complaints from neighbours about the smell and am really stuck for what I can do, I don't want him living here any more! Help

    (Assuming you are unhappy with it..) tell him to go, now, next 10 minutes (or whatever timescale you think fit.). If he argues ask him if he'd like you to contact the police instead....

      So tell him to leave then. As a lodger he has very little in the way of rights, compared with a tenant. I would think that if you want him out of your house because he's using drugs, you could provide a relatively short notice period; and you can change the locks on him if he refuses to go.

        Good point about locks... in your shoes even if he goes peaceably I'd change the locks....

        Best of luck!!
