This has been discussed a bit here buts it meen a while and would like to get an up to date answer as to where to get a good and resnably proced Lodger Licence/Aggreement.
The ones I have found are (whitch I beleve is the one use) for £16.99.
There is a free one on RocketLoyer  Well they pretend its free untill the end but it is posible to get it for free as you can cut and paste.  The whole pretending its free seems dodgy so I think I will avoide.
And another one for for £7.50 have a PDF download.
I really want onwe I can download and change as I want to add something about rent reviews (I have found in the past not doing this yearly casues problems).
Anyone got any advice on which is the best or any other good ones that are not too expensive (i.e. inder £25).

    Just make sure you have a rolling contract, not fixed term that ties you to the lodger from hell, with a short notice period eg 1 week.

    Have you read

    Post 10: Lodgers: advice & links for landlords & lodgers

    tbh as long as the basics are in the licence agreement, and you have clear 'house rules' that's all that matters.

    You can increase the rent simply by proposing a new rent to your lodger at ay time. They agree it, or they leave (after a week......)

    Don't forget the new Tenant Fees Act rules eg on deposits - they apply to lodgers too

    I have a basic template that I use and have modified over the last few years to take account of certain circumstances. The main one being able to give immediate notice (less than 24 hours) to vacate if the lodger is deemed to be abuse and/or threatening. The house rules also form part of the contract (things like no naked flames, no food in the bedrooms, ensure doors/windows are locked when going out)..
    Her courage will change the world.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
