A tenant has exclusive possession of their property whereas a lodger is an excluded occupier. This means that a tenant has the right to exclude all people from the property they occupy whereas a lodger doesn't have that right. A lodger will typically live in a live-in landlord's property whereas a tenant will rent from a landlord who does not live in the same property.
