    Hi, I’m new here so bear with me if this has been asked before.
    My wife’s sister is in the process of moving in with one of her friends. This friend is buying a house and my sister in law is renting a room with all bills included. Odd thing is, she’s got to go and see the solicitor to sign something next week and she’s given her friends her income details months ago. I’d there any reason she would need to see the solicitor as she’s not being part of the mortgage.
     
  2. A tenancy agreement perhaps? It protects both parties.

    Your sister is better off having a legal agreement so she has a level of protection and cannot be turfed out at a moments notice.

    They say that business and pleasure do not mix - they are right. Many friendships have found themselves on the rocks because of this. Get everything down on paper and official and then everyone knows where they stand.
