Found 5th Aug 2009
Quick question..... if your daughter's boyfriend moves into your home does he have any rights in the eyes of the law? Should the relationship turn sour, how easy is it to get him to leave?

Thanks for any advice given....

No rights whatsoever

How big is the daughters father?

He has moved into your home?

If so, he has no rights whatsoever. Even your daughter has no rights.

It's your house, your name on the deeds etc., therefore he has no rights whatsoever...

squatters rights? please be careful, I'd get some legal advice x

If it is your home , he has no rights whatsoever unless you agreed to add him to your tenancy :thumbsup:

If it's your daughters house which she shares with him and he is joint tenant , a quick call to the cops should any problems arise they will kick him out / forcefully :-D then your daughter gets a restraining order to stop him coming back

But why worry about this ? is your daughters partner a bit of a div sometimes :whistling:

if the form is too tough....























ask toni (serious)

He has no rights, chuck him out.

My mum did the same with my brothers stalker girlfriends

I wouldnt worry about turfing him out if it's turns sour, I would worry more about why you would have your daughter's bf move in in the first place.

Diito, he has to be on the agreement before he can live there at all.
If he's not on it, then they can both be thrown out by the landlord for breech of contract.

Sorry, you said that he has to be on the agreement to live there. He doesn't.
A landlord can't simply throw someone out who is not on an agreement anyway.

The OP has given next to no details.

You have to give specifics if you want a comprehensive answer to a query.

No worries, i just didnt know that.
I thought it was water tight and only the tennant named on the contract agreement could live there, guests are allowed sure, but not to move in :?

Yes, they can move in.

Again, it depends on the contract, but 99% of contracts wouldn't give a landlord the right to evict either the "guest" or tenant for the "guest" living there.

Thanks Saint, like you say it depends on the contract, and so does the OP's question:thumbsup:
But i'll be looking into this more i think :w00t:

Supermod

People always assume that this is cut and dry. Tenancy is a tough subject. You need to be careful of promissory estoppel. That is promises made to someone regarding future conduct regarding ownership. If they are just a tenant it should be fine...but if the tenants go on to become owners then no promises should be made to property etc.

Landlord/tenant/cahabitees isnt my strong point so call CAB or speak with a local solicitor if the problem escalates.

Sloth/Mod

If the relationship turned sour then why would he stay there anyway when he could be out knocking off someone else???

Thanks guys. My daughter is 19 and because her brother is moving out of the house we own, the likelihood is we will be asked can the BF move in. Just wanted to check if he did move in we weren't giving some implicit rights away.

I call to CAB might be in order.

Give them a call/visit.

Even if you made him pay, he would have no right to occupy. The law would not force someone to have a lodger in their house against their wishes.

Being a Landloard for many years you are wrong.
So what if the person on a singular person agrement, let all the rest, 4say of his or her family move in. Thats ok. Dont think so.

Never heard of a "Singular person agreement", got a link to one?

Original Poster

Right had a chat with CAB.

If he moves in and is effectively a lodger, shares bills etc but pays no rent, he is classed as an excluded occupier and has no rights.

However if we start charging a rent, then we become a landlord and need to enter a tenancy agreement,

My tenancy agreement is for MISS ********** on her own, singular, she has no right and is not allowed, to move anybody(extra person) into the property without asking me first.
Laid down in her agreement.Which she and I signed.
Under the heading Singular person tenancy agreement, produced and draw up by solicitors.

You can not have a valid tenancy agreement for someone that lives in the same house as the landlord. The person that advised you needs to check their facts.

You will find that that part of your tenancy agreement was invalid. If you are telling me that a court enforced that part, and evicted a tenant, I would be more than surprised.

A tenant can not sign away their statutory rights.
Put your tenancy agreement clause onto the Landlordzone forum, and see how it's torn to shreds.

Solicitors will write whatever you want them to.
