Thinking about having a lodger or subletting? You can -
but make sure you check your tenancy agreement first. You
can't have more people living in your home than your agreement
allows. If you receive housing benefit you'll also need to tell
your local council.
A lodger is someone who pays you to live in your home. You will
have access to their room. If you'd like a lodger, contact the
customer service centre to let them know. Unless you live in
shared accommodation we allow you to take in lodgers.
This means you allow someone to live in a self-contained area of
your home. You're not allowed to access this area. Get our written
permission first before subletting and remember - you can't
sublet your whole home.
If your lodger or subtenant causes a problem
This is your responsibility.
If you move out
You must ensure that the lodger or subtenant leaves as well.
