Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019
About 3 weeks ago 35
I moved into a room 2 years ago in a flat that has 3 other people renting out rooms.
The owners DO NOT live in the flat.
I recently lost my job and have become past due on my rent.
In a recent discussion with my landlord regarding the possibility of eviction he told me I’m a lodger and therefore have no rights and he can ask me to leave within seven days and can physically move me out.
My letter of agreement does say between owner and lodger but the owner has never lived in the flat.
Am I a tenant?
Am I entitled to at least 14 days notice even if my letter of agreement says 7 and won’t the owner need to get a court order to take possession?
