Are you a lodger landlord? We have new forms for you! » The Landlord Law Blog

If you are looking to take in a lodger to make some extra cash, we have a lot of help for you.

The Lodger Landlord website

First – you should read the Lodger Landlord website as this has free guidance on being a lodger landlord with guidance on the law, the legal obligations you need to comply with, and what you should do when they leave (or if they refuse to leave!).

We have recently done a refresh of the site, and the information has been updated.

Lodger forms

We have a number of useful forms for lodger landlords, which are available via our associated Your Law Store website, which mostly sells lodger-related forms.  All forms include guidance notes.

Our Lodger agreements and Lodger Packs have long been popular but we now have the following additional forms:

Lodger forms for Wales

Although the law on lodgers has not fundamentally changed with the introduction of the new housing law regime in Wales on 1 December, the terminology has.  There are also some other significant differences.  So we have now created new lodger forms for use in Wales, including:

  • A Welsh lodger agreement
  • A Welsh lodger forms pack
  • A Welsh lodger forms pack with the Welsh Lodger Agreement
  • A Welsh Monday to Friday lodger agreement
  • A Welsh forms pack  with the Monday to Friday Agreement

Permission pack for tenants’ lodger:

Normally landlords prohibit tenants from taking in a lodger.  This useful pack of forms contains a permission form which a landlord can use to amend their tenancy agreement to permit their tenant to have a lodger, a lodger agreement and detailed instructions.

There is also a version to use in Wales which can be found on the Wales page.
