Lodgers and sub-letting
Can I sub-let my whole property?
No – this is not allowed under your tenancy agreement.
Can I have a lodger/sub-tenant?
Yes – as long as you do not over-crowd the property or sub-let the entire property then you can have a lodger.
If you are thinking about taking in a lodger, there's a few things to think about first.

If you are claiming housing benefit or Universal Credit you must inform the housing benefit department at your local council if you take in a lodger as this can affect the benefit.
You must also contact us to inform us of your lodger’s details, including:
- Full name
- Date of birth
- Relationship to you (if any)
