    The neighbour next door to the Bambi flat seems to be celebrating Diwali. Today I found two small pots in the hall that have obviously had candles in them.

    This is a concern to me because we...

    You'd have to wait years before you could kick them out. If they have a viable business, it seems destructive for you to do that. I'm sure there must be vacant properties in your town, mustn't there?

    IIWY, I would look into the 'Rent a room scheme'.

    That would only allow a single lodger, as the rent is limited to £4250 per year, but as far as I know is completely tax free.

    Wouldn't if I were you. You might find that the lessee claims the space as his own in view of his being the only access to it.
