Lodger Notice Template To Terminate Agreement

If you have a lodger in your home and you want them to move out for no reason, and there is no breach, the template below is an example of what you could use to serve notice.

Before serving notice to your lodger:

  • read your lodger agreement carefully and follow any procedure set out. For example, it may stipulate how much notice period you are expected to give.
  • talk to your lodger before serving them notice. If you are unhappy about something, you should talk to your lodger about it if you haven’t done so already, because you maybe able to resolve it just by rationally discussing the problem.
  • the notice period you need to provide will depend on what type of lodger you have (i.e. excluded occupier or occupier with basic protection).

Dear [Lodger name],

You currently have an excluded lodger agreement with me because you share accommodation with me in my home.

It is with regret that I wish to terminate the lodger agreement.

I therefore hereby give you notice that I require you to vacate the room, premises, facilities you share with me and my home on or before [insert date].

It is important that you are made aware that after the above date has passed, I do not need a court order to obtain possession because you will be an excluded lodger.

For further information, please see this Gov.UK page about lodgers: https://www.gov.uk/rent-room-in-your-home/your-lodgers-tenancy-type.

If you are unsure about the contents of this letter you are urged to seek independent legal advice.

Yours sincerely,
