What is the definition of brothel ? Its like there is no difference between brothel and parlour. As they both provides place for wgs to work and take commission from each wgs.
A Parlour IS a brothel. Any same premises one or more WGs work from even alone but on separate days is a brothel, with the staff running it breaking the law, even if a WG answers the phone to punters she is technically breaking the law.
Only where a Indie WG works alone at all times from her own premises is that not a brothel. Even then unless she owns the freehold there is a good chance she is breaking the terms of her Mortgage, Lease or Rental agreement which could see her get evicted dependent on the landlord. This is why some brothels get their premises through dodgy landlords who in exchange for renting the premises out as a brothel, take a higher than market rent, sometimes a much higher than market rent.
