Am I landlord in the legal sense if I allow my daughter and granddaughter to live in a second home that I own outright, and although they pay no rent, they pay for the upkeep of the property?
If I am a landlord, then can I assume I have a responsibility for their health and safety in terms of gas certificates, electrical certificates, smoke alarms, etc? If I am not deemed to be a landlord, what responsibilities do I have towards my daughter?
Similarly, if the same house is owned by a trust, where my daughter is one of the beneficiaries, is the trust deemed to be a landlord? If so, do all the trustees bear a joint responsibility towards the person living there, albeit, one of the trustees?
I just wondered if anybody reading Property118 has been in a similar situation.
