Tessa has for many years run an online service for residential landlords and tenants at www.landlordlaw.co.uk. Prior to 2010, this included information about lodgers and downloadable lodger agreements. However, people who rent out a room to lodgers do not generally want to join a web-site aimed at landlords.
So this site was written for them. Although lodgers themselves will no doubt find it interesting, the site is written primarily for their landlords, hence the site title ‘Lodger Landlords’.
Note that the site does not just cover legal matters. We also look at other aspects such as providing meals and services. Some of these posts will have affiliate links.
Incidentally, Tessa was a lodger landlord herself from about 1989 until 1995. So this web-site is based not only on her legal knowledge but also her personal experience of renting rooms in her house to lodgers for six years.
Tessa Shepperson ran her own solicitors practice between 1994 and October 2010 but decided to close this down in September 2013 to concentrate on running her legal information service Landlord Law and her training business.
Note that the lodger forms sold via this site are all provided by Tessa’s company Zollch Ltd. There are also a few affiliate links for other products and services.

Advice. Please note that Tessa does not give free ‘one to one’ advice either to lodgers or to lodger landlords, for example by telephone or via email. Please do not ask, as a refusal often offends. We do not return calls where callers leave a message asking us to ring back with advice.
