I’m just wondering whether you can tell me definitively from a legal point of view: I have lodgers in my house and the fourth bedroom is mine. I have been offered a summer job abroad which could see me going away up until mid December.
Does this affect my live-in landlord status? I don’t want to accidentally create a tenancy. My room will remain empty, all my possessions here and I pay all the bills. The council, Welsh landlord registry, HMRC and my solicitor think it’s fine, I just wanted to triple check as I read something about a six month rule, and my solicitor wanted me to check with an expert.
I’m a freelancer and have to take what work I can get…
