House sharing when you're older

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 you're older.

But if you’re aged 40+ then finding rooms to rent or the right housemate or flatmate can be difficult. That's why we started Cohabitas - listen to a recent BBC interview with co-founder Nick.

Whether you are considering renting out a spare room or looking for new housemates, registering with Cohabitas gives you the best chance of finding the right sort of people.

Register now. It's completely free to have a look around.
