When you think of a live in landlord Rising Damp and Rigsby comes to mind. These days the modern version is very different. Co-habitating with tenants, lodgers or longer term paying guests ticks numerous boxes. Instead of a collection of individuals living very separate lives, with a live in landlord main activity being trying to find fault with his or her paying guests, it’s now more about being a partnership. Community spirit thriving under one roof.
