Hi UK Lawyer,That was a good answer.
Now for a desperate question, it's going to sound like I'm clutching at straws so I apologies.Would it make a difference if my dad wrote a letter stating that they were very happy for us being together and living under the same roof, and that they wouldn't be charging any rent or requiring any money for food that was put on the table??Is there anything that can be done to influence the situation in our favour??Also, would having a joint account set up make any difference??
Thanks very much.
