Not allowed on council estates
Not allowed, really?
Room renting is positively encouraged ... with an excellent incentive of £7,500 tax free income.
There seems to be some confusion about room renting - which can be facilitated via AirBnB.
Graham, can you cite your source please?
Room renting may be encouraged - but presumably only where it is legal! From the same www.gov.uk source: "Iím an owner-occupier. Do I need permission to let out part of my home?... If you are a long leaseholder, you should check the terms of the lease to ensure that you can let part of the property and, if necessary, get the freeholderís agreement first..."
"Iím a tenant. Can I sublet part of the property or take in lodgers?... If you are a secure council tenant, you have the right to take in a lodger, but cannot sublet part without the councilís written permission, you cannot sublet the whole of a secure tenancy. If you are a private tenant, you should check the terms of your tenancy. If there has been nothing agreed to the contrary, the tenant would be free to sublet. However, in practice most private tenancies prohibit subletting."
