I am a absentee landlord, but also periodically have lodgers in my home.
If I have lodgers in my home and want to take a damage retainer from them in case of damage. As I am not required to give them a tenancy agreement or even register a bond, would I be within my rights to make a self determination on any matters arising from damage iro withholding some or all of the retainer. Do you think it might be better to still do a photo inventory and condition report with a section outlining how I would assess and calculate cost of issues around faut and damage repair or replacement. Out of courtesy rather than 'obligation'. Also, in case a lodger tries to issue a civil action against me?
