There is a construction worker that has their own abode in a different state and is in process of moving to Washington State. It would be convenient to allow them to stay in my home under construction. The intended duration of stay would be one month. That is longer than the amount of time to establish residency in the eyes of local law enforcement in practice. I want to ensure definitively that that would not happen.
What would not happen
- the worker would not receive mail
- they would not have a key to the house
What would happen if we can set up a proper legal arrangement:
- stay overnight and do homey things like laundry and cooking
The construction worker would be willing to write whatever is needed and sign any document to attest that they are not a resident and would leave at my bequest on the same day. They do not appear to have any intention to violate this.
The stay would be of convenience and does not represent a portion of their compensation: they would be on a fixed price contract that would not differ based on whether or not they stay at the house.
Would it be needful to have a "break" in there e.g. to have them go to an AirBnb or hotel for some days in the middle?
Also would the signed documents be enforceable (/likely to be enforced by a deputy's office) after say three weeks of staying if they have a change of heart (or if I have misread their intentions) and they decide to try to make this their residence after all ?
