Hi everyone. This is probably going to sound silly even as I write it but here goes. I’m a live in landlord who has been offered a job abroad for a few months.
Accepting this job would mean me having to get a residency permit in that country for the duration of my stay (thanks Brexit!) – and thus presumably being considered a resident there. Does anyone know if this is possible in the eyes of UK law?
I don’t want to accidentally create a tenancy/ HMO situation and wouldn’t be moving permanently (keep my room free, leave all my belongings there, have all my mail and bills go there, remain the sole bill + council tax payer etc.)
I know about the 6 month rule, but was wondering whether there was any flexibility on this, given the incredibly rubish times we’re living through.
