Check Your Occupation Type – Private

Question 2:

Do you pay rent AND do you have ‘exclusive occupation’ of the property?

‘Exclusive occupation’ means that you are able to keep everyone out from your house, flat or room.  So this will not be the case for example if you share your room with someone on a separate agreement for example if you live in a hostel with a shared dormitory.

In most cases, if you have signed an agreement to rent a property, you will have ‘exclusive occupation’.

Click the ‘yes’ button if you have exclusive occupation, or click the ‘no’ button if this is not the case, or if you want to find out more.
