Licence Agreement

Non-legal words

A licence agreement is the contract under which a person is given permission to occupy accommodation without having a tenancy. A licence provides less security of tenure than a tenancy and it is therefore easier for the occupier to be evicted. Supported accommodation schemes such as hostels tend to issue licenses to their service users because it gives them the flexibility and control they need to move people around, gain access to their rooms, remove them if they break the house rules etc.
