Can shared owners have a lodger?

Taking in a lodger is where you rent out a room in your home to someone else but you keep living in the property.

As a shared owner you are able to take in a lodger but you must make sure that:

  • You inform us that you are taking in a lodger.
  • You don’t give your lodger a tenancy agreement.
  • You do not move out.
  • The lodger doesn’t have exclusive use of any part of your home except their bedroom.
  • You do not charge a lodger more than the rental element.

For further information please call us on 0300 456 2099 and ask to speak to the Home Ownership Approvals Team or email us.
