A lodger does not have exclusive use of all, or part, of the property, meaning that they cannot exclude the landlord from accessing the property in any way. In practice, this means that a lodger might be able to have a lock on their door provided that they give the landlord a copy; however, to avoid the risk of granting the lodger exclusive possession of the property, most landlords will refuse to allow lodgers to install locks on their doors.
