Rent a room in your home

Our tenants can offer a room in their home to lodgers.

Tenants are eligible to take in a lodger if:

  • they get permission in writing from us

  • a lodger would not cause over-crowding

  • they are not sub-letting the whole property

Taking in a lodger can help tenants who:

  • are paying the spare room subsidy, (bedroom tax), and do not want to move out
  • want to downsize but have not found a suitable home
  • live alone and would like some company
  • want the added security of having someone else at home
  • have a spare room as grown-up children have left home or are away in full-time education

If you’re interested in taking in a lodger please get in touch.

Email us at tenancy.specialist@salixhomes.co.uk or call us on 0800 218 2000.

Finding a lodger

There are many ways to find a lodger. You may even know someone already who wants to lodge with you.
