Landlord and Tenant Rights and Responsibilities

questions & answers

Question: If a person staying for free on a property as a caretaker and sublets a room without owner permission and without a written rental agreement, who is entitled to the rent money?

Answer: Depending on the terms and conditions of the agreement between the property’s owner or primary leaseholder and the caretaker, the property’s owner or primary leaseholder may have an argument for claiming that the caretaker has breached the agreement, but it is less certain that the property’s owner or primary leaseholder has an argument for claiming that the caretaker’s rent revenue belongs to the property’s owner or primary leaseholder. It might be helpful to discuss the situation in detail with an attorney.
