Sounds like the perfect tenant !

I would not worry to much yet 3 weeks is nothing in the grand scheme of developing a new routine .
I suspect that over time he will fall into a routine that uses the house a bit more .

Seeing as it’s near impossible to line up moving out date to move in date there will often be 1-2 weeks paying rent on 2 places. I’ve had a landlady asking me why I was never around and was I cancelling the move, well I was paid up in the old place and in no rush

I think next month he’ll be around more often when things are more settled and he gets into a routine

Until then you have the dream lodger

Thanks for the replies

Maybe i am getting a bit anxious as to why he hasn't properly moved in. Could be totally genuine.

I'll see whats it like in a month or 2 whether or not i should be worried.

No food or shower items in the house.
Has a new place, has stuff in new place. Is slowly adding stuff to new place so the girlfriend doesn't see sudden change in the amount of stuff he has in the house.

I'm thinking that he's planning on splitting up with his girlfriend?

You're going to charge him €50 a month for gas and electricity and he's hardly been in the place?!

He’s probably going to bump you off and assume your identity. You heard it here first!:-)

If you never use gas there is still a standing charge on meter. It’s new tenants problem if he doesn’t use it. I’m sure it was agreed before hand.

Standing charge is about 7 a month, for the entire house though

it was the same last time I moved, I still had my old place and a lot of food there.. Rather than moving everything over right away I moved some stuff and then stayed in my old apartment until I had finished all the food (there was a 3 week period where I had access to both my new and old place) and then moved.

My new flat mate did react similar to you and asked why I was never around and why I hadn't brought any food yet.

Don't worry about it, as long as s/he pays and doesn't do anything illegal I don't see why you should care. Renting a room/apartment does not mean you must live there, my friend has a house in the country side but also rents a room in city center.. He's rarely there but sometimes if he's working late he will stay the night, I imagine his flat mates might be confused about this as well if he didn't explain it to them (and why would he have to?)

Doesn't really matter if it was agreed before hand though that the bills would be that.
Whatever about electricity the apartment still costs the same to heat with one or two people so op shouldn't be out of pocket just because the tenant doesn't want to use that heated space.
