Can my boyfriend stay in my rented flat for 1 1/2 months? | Lawhive - Solicitors & Lawyers Online
Can my boyfriend stay in my rented flat for 1 1/2 months?
My boyfriend lives in the US he is coming to stay for 1 1/2 months. Can he stay in my rented flat or does he count as a tenant? My contract doesn’t state a length of time guests can stay. Just that I cannot sublet or allow someone to live there semi-permanently. Not too long ago I was homeless and I stayed with my aunt in her rented flat for 3 months with no issues.

He would have what's known as a "bare licence" i.e. he's been told he can be there but you're not charging him anything, so all he really has is your permission to stay there, which you can revoke at any time. It's unlikely anyone would know or care, least of all your landlord - especially not if there's no contractual conditions either way.

He can stay for that time with absolutely no problems you are renting the flat and he’s coming to stay with you…. Nothing to worry about at all!
