DocuSign is an e-signature company which now offers additional products such as a contract lifecycle management platform, contract analytics, and a document generator for Salesforce.

A lodger licence contract allows a live-in landlord to rent a room in their main home to a lodger. A lodger is an excluded occupier which means that they do not have exclusive possession of their room. As a result, a lodger is not a tenant and has less rights than under an assured shorthold tenancy as they are living in the landlord's main home. A lodger will usually licence the room for a couple of weeks or months.

It is not possible to create a lodger licence contract with DocuSign. However, if you have your own lodger licence contract, you can use DocuSign to e-sign it. However, you will not be able to tailor the template to your requirements within DocuSign. This must happen before using DocuSign.
