Legal Eagle Q & A: When an investment property crosses the family line
Question: My wife and I bought an investment flat and allowed our daughter to live in there on the agreement she would pay us a low rent. She has allowed two of her friends to move in with her, and they are not only not paying any rent to us, they are not paying towards the rent that our daughter pays. It is a really difficult situation – our daughter is embarrassed but also cannot stand up to her friends, and we are getting seriously fed up with the situation. Because our daughter is the tenant we do not have a tenancy agreement – what can we do?
