You have the right to move in a lodger provided that you inform SUHA in writing of the person’s name, age, sex and the rent that you may be charging.  You may take in lodgers provided this does not result in overcrowding.  Before taking in a lodger you should remember:

  • Your benefits will be affected
  • Your lodger will have no tenancy rights
  • You are responsible for the behaviour of your lodger.  It will be your tenancy at risk if your lodger causes a nuisance or breaks any of your tenancy conditions
  • If you want your lodger to leave, it is up to you to get them out lawfully.
