I own a flat and am renting a room out to someone whose girlfriend stays over a lot. I have asked that he not have her in the flat alone, and I thought he agreed. this morning when leaving for work she was still there and he had already left. I spoke to him about this and he seems to think that because my sister stayed over last night that he's entitled to have her in the flat as he likes. Now my sister stayed over, but she left when I did, and as it's my flat surely I am not subject to the same rules as him.

I made the point that he and my sister are both covered by my insurance if they burn down the flat, break something, etc. but it's invalidated if his girlfriend is there alone.


Any thoughts? Do I have to justify this or can I just say my flay and I don't want someone who's not a tenant or paying rent wandering around when no one else is there.

You are a resident landlord in a shared house with shared facilities. You call the shots.

If he's lodging in your own home then you have every right to make reasonable rules about how he and his guests conduct themselves, including to request that he is present at the same time as any guests. If he doesn't want to live by your reasonable expectations then he would need to find somewhere else to live. Lodgers are entitled to reasonable peace and privacy but their rights are far more restricted than those held by tenants of separate property.
