    That's not what the one's I've ever seen (which is a limited number!) do.

    I think you might helpfully describe the arrangement you have in mind, then I'm sure someone can point you at an appropriate example.

    Things that matter (as well as you living in the property as well) are what parts will you keep separate for individual use and which will you share (if any)?
    Will any of the separate area for the other person have cooking facilities?

    To be honest, though, if you're sharing the property with someone and you own it, giving them a right to live there for 15 years is going to be tricky.
    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).

      Are you saying that the toilet and basin are out in the open, adjacent to the kitchen? Or are they in a separate room?

      Does the room have a window? Or a fan ventilator?

      It's had to visualise exactly what you mean. Could you sketch a simple floorplan and upload that here p...

      by NewGuyOne

      A rented flat with a toilet (of course) and basin next to the kitchen, and a bedroom with a quite small en suite - shower/basin/rail for towel ... Is this acceptable in a flat - with no additional separate bathroom?

      Flat consists of 1 bedroom en suite, hallway, lounge,...

      Thank you Lawcruncher.

      Just so I am not reading the lease wrong. Executed as a deed means that it has to say that and be witnessed by a 3rd party right?...

      I have rented my house to a {name removed} who use it to house Asylum seekers from a govt contract. In June the flat roof developed a leak and they asked me to fix it which I did the next day. 6 months later I get a bill for £1900 for scaffolding, asbestos survey, party wall agreement & for some...

      by jshire
      I'm trying to assist a family member who is in the process of surrendering a lease on a shared flat (all tenants moving out). The landlord agreed as the reasons were reasonable. He's sent an email stating that there will be costs that the tenants have to meet, charged by the letting agent...

      But if you had a valid certificate when the tenancy started but failed to give it to the tenant, then I believe that providing them with a current certificate before serving S21 will be OK....

    • Gas certificate fail
      by ReginaPhalangi
      We've been renting out our property since 2017 and now have given notice to our tenants to leave. However we have just realised that we have failed to get a gas certificate during their tenancy. Is it possible to get the gas certificate now? Would we need to give notice again after we issue the gas...

      There are a number (of the order of 20) of grounds under which possession can be sought. See the Housing Act 1988.

      The claim is for the period for which they were paying rent whilst there was no required licence in place, up to a maximum of 12 months. Getting a licence ends...

      That depends on when the tenancy started.

      Or, possibly, the one in place when it is given to the tenant. The regulations are ambiguous...

      4. Antisocial behaviour…..a fair and consistent approach to everyone. No. 4 is then not mentioned in the extended information (click link). Surely this needs explaining in detail or, maybe, they haven’t actually thought further that the nine words used. No surprise.
