    Tenant's boyfriend's rights re her tenancy

    I am about to buy a flat that my boyfriend will move in with me. The flat will be in my name, as is the mortgage.

    Whilst it is currently all roses I need to protect myself (and my parents' investment in the property) should anything go wrong.

    Are there any occasions when he would gain rights to the property (such as squatters rights??) and would a tennancy agreement be enough to cover me in this matter.

    He's totally calm about the option of having a contract!!

    Just allow him a licence to lodge, that way you can just kick him out if he doesn't do the dishes

    As for any other rights you may or may not allow your boyfriend, well that is down to you!

      Is there already a Trust Deed between you [owner] and your parents [beneficiaries] to protect their stake in value invested? There ought to be, so get it done asap. If you/they agree division of all 100%, there's nothing left for boyfriend in any event!

        There is a "living together" agreement you can download from the internet. It has been upheld in court too.

        Oh and on a serious note... I am NOT a Legal person and therefore anything I post could be complete and utter drivel... but its what I have learned in the University called Life!

          I think you've done all you can in the situation including what many would not in offering your own facilities. I think, given the T's circumstances she would have been in her right to argue for some reduction in rent due to the inconvenience of not having all that she paid for. Perhaps you could negotiate...

          by tedcbe
          Hi I have a tenant who has checked into a hotel due to the fact that the boiler broke down and says she will reduce the amount in the next month’s rent.
          I have never agreed for her to check into a hotel in the first place.
          She reported there is an issue with the heating on Sunday night...

          Hi all, I've searched for similar thread but didn't succeed.

          There was a case in Bristol similar where the judge rule that the landlord was right to give the original tenant the pi only and didn't need to for a later tenant but I know there was other info about the case, worth no win no fee tho

          Hi all ex tenant here, hoping someone can help as I can't find a lot of concrete advice online. Basically, I ended a very stressful tenancy in Aug 2019. There was a lot of back and forth, unclear info, and formal complaints, plus at the end of the tenancy they scalped us with deposit deductions. Just...

          It is worth seeking with a no win no fee firm in this scenario. I would offer my opinion to say that the LA were remiss in not providing you with the deposit information. How were you to know the details contained within the Prescribed Info?
          It sounds as if some short cuts were taken by the...

          LOL, do you not read the news (or do you skip over anything disability/benefit related)?.

          "Everyones a scrounger" is endemic in the benefits system, from government ministers to jobcentre staff.
