Taking in a lodger or sub-letting a room in your home can be a good way to help you pay your rent and share some of your household bills. But – it comes with responsibilities and may affect your benefits.
If you want to take in a lodger or sub-let a room, you need to talk to us first. You’ll also need to contact your council’s housing benefit team.
Contact us and we’ll talk you through the pros and cons.
Remember – you can sub-let a room, but you can’t sublet your whole home. If you do sub-let your property you’ll be breaking the terms of your tenancy agreement.
