This Lodgers Agreement has been endorsed by the NLA (National Landlords Association) you can be confident that it is the right legal form for you.

A Lodger Agreement is used when a homeowner or a tenant of furnished property wants to rent a room and share common parts of the property (e.g. bathroom, toilet, kitchen and sitting room) with the lodger or lodgers. This agreement can be used by both homeowners and tenants taking in lodgers – but tenants are advised to check that their tenancy agreement does not prevent them from taking in lodgers.
