Moving In

9 posts in this topic

Hey there everyone, I've had a trawl through the posts and Im still a little confused on legalities of my situation.

Basically I own my house (or rather the bank does, damn mortgage) and I have been toying with the idea of my girlfriend, who is an escort, moving in. Obviously she will still want to keep working, which is fine.

The posts I've read all seem to deal with renting properties. But as the owner of my house, and not forcing the mrs to do anything she doesn't want to do herself, what are the legal ramifications e.g. her earnings, me knowing what she does etc.

Thanks for any help, and Im sorry if this seems to be a repeat of other posts.

Your post is slightly ambiguous. You don't say whether your girlfriend will be seeing clients at the house although I assume that's the issue you're concerned about.

There's no problem with her helping to pay the mortgage or put food on the table or lending or giving you money as any normal girlfriend would. If you have no involvement in taking calls from clients or arranging her schedule there's no problem. There's an offence of controlling prostitution for gain but you would have to be shown to have influenced her prostitution - not by force. It would be enough for you to take a call, tell the client "Yes, she's free at 4, come along then" - and you would fall foul of this law. So long as she's the only girl working there you're not keeping a brothel, and as long as you have nothing to do with fielding clients for her you should be fine although it would not be unheard of for the police to turn up and check what's going on. There used to be an offence of "living off immoral earnings" which would have scuppered you, but these days you have to be shown to exercise some influence on her activities.

You got it spot on, I was just concerned about legalities concerning me, she seems to have the other stuff in hand.

Thanks for your input, much appreciated and has shifted the weight from my mnd! Don't suppose you know anything about insurances etc, if its classed as a business?

I'd check your mortgage conditions. and your home insurance. I suspect they may have something to say.

Ah yes, my wife's suspicions were raised when I asked if the "no prostitutes on the premises" clauses could be removed from our mortgage agreement and insurance...

They don't miss a trick, do they?

The simplest way to find out if it contravenes mortgage or insurance conditions is to ask your providers what the situation would be if your partner was a physiotherapist working in your home.

Physiotherapy isn't immoral (allegedly). It's not just running a business from home that could be a problem, it's the immorality clause malarkey (technical term) :)
