Actually, I think that is a perfect solution. I will ignore her for now and if she insists, I will bring up the legality of de facto renting and see what she says.x9200 wrote:Why your housemates insisted to inform the LL? Makes completely no sense to me. If you still want to negotiate with the LL instead of just going ahead and ignoring her baseless request, ask what is this money for? Ask, if she is aware that if this is like (de facto) renting part of the premises to your brother, what would actually be illegal and whether she is absolutely sure she wants to do the illegal thing.
Thank you for that suggestion.
