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.

HelloSign do not offer a Lodger Licence contract template. To create a Lodger Licence contract with HelloSign you will need to upload your own template. Moreover, you won't be able to make edits to the lodger agreement in HelloSign once the template has been uploaded. Updating a template will therefore require updating the document outside of HelloSign and then uploading it again.
