License - By Invitation

  • Put simply this is what is granted to a visitor to a property:
    • allowing visitors to stay as long as owners permit
    • expiring upon owners asking visitors to leave.
  • See Street and Mountford for a comparison of a lease and a licence.
  • not to be confused with property licensing - the first licensee has few rights whereas the second license holder has significantly more rights to let where others may not.
