Rent a room in your home


There is an excellent guide to renting a room in your house. The rent a room scheme explains the types of tenancy or licence you can offer, the rights of the resident landlord and the tenant (known as an excluded tenant) and also explains about the tax-free income of £7,500 per annum you are allowed to earn under the scheme. Worth a read if you are new to letting.

You you should also see our live-in landlord lodger agreement template to understand what is involved in renting a room.
