Non-legal words

A licensee is a person who has been given permission to occupy accommodation without having a tenancy. A licensee has less security than a tenant and cannot prevent the landlord from doing certain things such as requiring people to change rooms, enter into someone’s room. For this reason people who live in supported accommodation schemes such as hostels tend to be licensees.
