Thread: Getting a lodger?

  1. #1

    Getting a lodger?

    Are there any special requirements for FAC holders thinking of getting a lodger?

    Anyone want to room in Cambridge?

    Cheers

    No idea about a lodger but I can imagine its another check on him and if unsuitable to be in close proximity to firearms ...........!
    Friend trying to buy a flat in Cambridge for the start for the new term - Gasumping isnt the word for it, Started at 250 and now at 275 and still going up. Any hints on how to buy one at the guide price ?????!!!

    Hi Kes,
    My advice: Take cash! Trying to buy in Cambridge at the start of term is like buying a sports car in the spring.

    I guess I'm looking for someone with FAC or DBS (what used to be Criminal Records Bureau).

    Cheers,

    Halam

    Just ask them if they mind you doing an in depth rather than basic CRB check on them , most people won't mind and you have paper proof that you checked them out

    Why!?
    Are you going to background check everyone who comes through the door?
    my meter gets read and the guy who does it is within 6 ft of two cabinets.
    Should I ask for him to complete a background check?


    Assuming your security is up to snuff then there is no issue

    don't start looking for reasons for the Police to need more checks!

    In my opinion, I'd be asking my local licence depth. What they want you to do as they are the ones who can revoke your license, if you don't want to let them in on things then maybe basc or the like. I wouldn't be risking my license by taking advice from a forum ''no disrespect to folk but my license is precious to me so I'd want info from the people who know 100%''
    Next time you're walking down the street and see a homeless person go buy them a sandwich and a coffee, change of fate and it could be you one day !!!

    BUY BRITISH !!!!

    What he said
    I agree why do we need to jump thru more hoops but ....
    They are the ones that can remove it in a heartbeat ( licence)

    There is no continuity across the board with licensing so for all you know your local force may be totally against it ....

    They might take the view well your lodger ....whose he hanging around with ? What if he takes back some guy he's pally with that is untrustworthy , when your not there?

    Don't jump down my neck, like I said I,disagree with all those checks etc but I wouldn't want the guy get room let out , then his feo comes,round for a check , discovers he's letting a room then goes oh hell no and licence gun and guns half hour later ...

    Check first bud .

    It isnt beyond the bounds of probablity given previous experience (Durham) so why not prepare ? The FEO I had initially advised me that boys aged 8/9 tend to get inquisitive about guns and they may be tempted if they know where your keys might be found. Catch - all maybe but worth the thought. Tends to suggest the level of potential concern about others in close proximity.
