Earn Money by Renting a Room in your Home
Have you considered taking in a lodger? If you have a spare bedroom you could generate additional income* and at the same time assist someone who is struggling to find suitable affordable accommodation.
Taking in a lodger is not only a good way to earn extra income, they can also provide extra security if you are away from home. A lodger can sometimes become a friend or a good companion for people who live alone.
Before taking in a lodger you will need to obtain written permission from your landlord. It is also advisable to inform your insurers. Not all types of tenancy agreement allow you to take in a lodger so contact your Neighbourhood Manager for advice before you make any arrangements.
*You need to be aware that if you are in receipt of a means tested benefit or receive single person discount on your Council Tax, these will currently be affected if you decide to take in a lodger.
