Considering the new Government initiative to invite the general public with spare rooms in their homes to house Ukrainian refugees we are developing a new stand-alone Lodger Policy.

The right to take in a lodger into your home is part of your Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement Section 4.

It is a basic Policy outlining an individual request from a tenant, with timescales for formal response to the request and possible reasons for refusal. We have a draft lodger contract that each tenant would be required to complete with their lodger in each circumstance.

If you wish to make a lodger request, please make a request by contacting the office during opening hours or email

If you wish to discuss in detail the lodger policy, please contact our Senior Housing Officer John Mallon at
