    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!

          A 15 year old washing machine has almost zero value (and will have less when you move out).
          The landlord can only legitimately claim for their loss if you bin it.

          A mid range washing machine is about £350 (and they haven't changed much in price recently), and imagining one would...

          We've recently rented a house that from the very start seemed badly taken care of - there were various problems like a mouldy washing machine/curtains, broken curtain rails, etc. When we arrived to meet the inventory clerk, we signed a 2-page document of handwritten inventory notes (we broadly agreed...

          Our property was let part furnished however upon leaving the Ex. tenant took it upon himself to relieve us of the white goods and wooden blinds.

          The dishwasher, washing machine, 2 x fridge freezers and wooden blinds throughout were actually ones purchased when the property was our main...

          This is very helpful, MdeB, thank you. I will try to relax about the inventory now. In regards to the mould - the landlord has a letter from the curtain cleaning company stating that the mould has been "killed" during the cleaning. I actually spoke with the curtain cleaner when he was here...

          by jpkeates
          The process seems to have changed recently.
          The landlord claims from the deposit and that claim should have a summary of what they are claiming and why.
          You dispute that and then you both have one chance to explain your side of the story.
          But you do that with only access to what the...

          I am moving out of my rented home shortly, i have caused some damage which I notified the landlord of when it happened and they have recently visited to discuss the cost of repairs, which we have agreed. The landlord is now asking that I pay this money to them directly. It is not possible for the work...

          by jpkeates
          Every notice escalated to court is recorded and the figures published quarterly, so breaking out the s21 notices from the s8 shouldn't be complicated.

          Two of the links are to House of Commons research papers, to be fair!...

        • Section 21 issued with new tenancy
          by fmST1
          When a new tenant moves into a property, I get them to sign a section 21 so that if whatever reason things don’t work out, the necessary paperwork is already in place.
          I’ve never had a need to exercise this yet, but would it work?...

          It depends on your local market.
          Mine seems expect a fridge freezer and washing machine as an "unfurnished" property.

          Blinds not curtains and it varies - usually whats been left behind (have had to add some blind safety hook things in the past).
