Well, you may not want to stoop to that level. However, it may be reasonable to require the Lodger to help maintain the Premises (perhaps as consideration for reduced rent?), or to do certain chores. In any case, whatever the Landlord may want to call out, he/she can include it in the attachment below.
The Landlord agrees to provide the following accommodations under this Lodger Agreement:
PandaTip: Is the Landlord willing/expected to provide food, to prepare breakfast or lunch, to do laundry or keep the premises clean? Is there anything else that is expected of the Landlord? In order to not show prejudice, you might add showering to this list too. 😉
Any notices hereunder shall be sent to the address of each party first set forth above.
This Lodger Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of England and Wales.
