Taking in a lodger

Please make sure you have read this important information before you agree to take in a lodger

We want to give you the information you need to consider if you are thinking about taking a lodger into your council home. We always recommend that you get independent legal advice about lodgers and find out more from the government's website as this is a big decision to make.

Lodger advice and information:

Universal Credit – changes ahead
If you go onto Universal Credit your benefits maybe affected in a different way.  You can find more information about these changes at the Department for Work and Pensions website: www.dwp.gov.uk
