Hey guys, I've gotten my self into a bit of dilemma.
My partner lost his job a month or so ago as the company where he was a senior manager has gone bust.
Since then he has been applying for jobs daily but the recruiting process is long winded. Thankfully, he is a self employed qualified PT and has been doing this to make ends meet as a temporary solution to a crap situation.
He lost the lease on his flat as he had no employment and now is finding it hard to rent a flat as he is self employed and his wages change weekly.
He has been staying with me for over a month now. I live in a huge house share where there are no bills. The problem is this, one of the girls has reported me to the landlady (as she wants me to move out so that her man can have my room) and now I have been told that if it is found out that he is staying here i can be evicted for this... Which I completely understand. I asked her and the others if they have a problem with it as he's rarely here anyway due to unsocial hours and they have probably seen him less than a handful of times. (I have my own floor and we share a kitchen etc) there was no problem with this.
Now if I'm caught with him in the flat I may face eviction. I told the landlady he stays over at times.
I know that what I'm doing is wrong as Im aware of the lease. I really don't know what to tell him as he's extremely down about the whole thing but on the other side I have to look after myself.
Might I mention I have my own floor, the bills are all included, he showers at the gym, and im sure the landlady knows the situation and has to follow complaints.
The girl who reported me, her boyfriend lives in the same apartment block but a different flat. They have looked for a flat with two rooms in the same complex to rent and couldn't... Hence why she dogged me in so I can move out and he can move in!
Im very anxious now and need advice on what to do.

If you don't mind him living with you then go to the landlady and be frank about the situation. She may be able/willing to help for a certain amount of time or maybe revise your lease so that he can stay. And i doubt she can just show up and toss you out of the room even if you are in violation of the lease. There will be a process that she has to follow, first they will have to notify you of the violation and require that you comply. If you don't comply, only then can they start an eviction process which can take months to complete. Personally, i'd let my guy stay until i get a notice of non compliance and then go tell the landlady that is going on and ask if there is some way she can help. Otherwise, he needs to go find a place on his own that might involve rooming up wiht someone or renting a room at someone's house or something like that. But you need to tell him the situation.0
