When a flat share ad says "no couples", does that mean as my partner's girlfriend, I couldn't stay around for a night or two?

My partner is looking for a flat/house share around the same area I live in, while I don't plan to live with him yet, I was wondering when an ad says "no couples" does it mean I won't be able to stay over for a night or two?

  • No couple means that they do not want you living there full time. A night would be you visiting but you would have to be acceptable with the other flatmates who might have very specific reasons to say "no couples". Two or more nights could become an issue with the other residences. I would suggest being upfront with the other house share residents, and prove you have your own residence to them as to not waste your time and possible issues.

  • Hi, We think it is unreasonable for a landlord to restrict how you use for your flat as a single person has the right to quiet enjoyment and in the event his or her partner stays over a few nights a week, then that is their business and no-one else including the landlord.

  • If it is a flatshare then you may have a bedroom to yourself but you are probably sharing other facilities, particularly the bathroom. It would be understandable for a landlord or other occupiers to be concerned if you had someone else staying too much - more people queuing for the bathroom etc. All depends on circumstances
