Welcome to Cohabitas

House share exclusively for the over 40s

Whether you are already experienced at sharing or are thinking about sharing your home for the first time, this is the place for you.

A house share or flatshare with people other than a partner or in a traditional family is common-place for younger people, but it’s also a great alternative to living alone when older.

But if you’re aged 40+, then finding the right sort of housemates or rooms for rent can be a challenge. That's why we started Cohabitas.

For Housemates

Find rooms to rent, housemates to buddy-up with, or join a group to plan your own co-living development.

For Landlords

Home owners can find a lodger and landlords can find tenants by listing either a room to rent or a whole property.

Whether you are already experienced at sharing or are thinking about sharing your home for the first time, this is the place for you.

Find rooms to rent, housemates to buddy-up with, or join a group to plan you own co-living development, all with other people over 40 interested in sharing.

Home owners can find a lodger and landlords can find tenants by listing either a room to rent or a whole property.
