Lodger not paying rent - HELP please
I have a very dear friend who last year decided to rent out two bedrooms in his house to 2 separate individuals as Lodgers. Very foolishly he did not take a deposit, despite him being told otherwise!!! Neither did he get them to sign any type of Lodger agreement... nothing!!! We feared it might end in tears. All was going well until this month when one of the Lodgers decided not to pay any rent to him!
Can anyone please help in advising what he can do? Can he ask Lodger to just leave? Does he have 'any' rights? Does the Lodger have any rights? Etc.
All replies gratefully received.
