Taking in a lodger series starts next week

Reading time:

The New Year always sees a rush for shared accommodation. In fact January is the single busiest month on SpareRoom.

In part, no doubt, this is driven by a new batch of people taking in lodgers to cope with the post-Christmas financial hangover. With that in mind we’ll be starting a new series of blog posts as from Monday, full of tips and advice for anyone thinking of renting out the spare room in their home.

It’s a big decision and one you shouldn’t take lightly. Luckily we’re on hand to guide you through the process and we also have plenty of advice from others who’ve done so (and who can point out the pitfalls in advance to help you avoid them).

Check back on Monday for post #1
