You and Your Lodger
The Pocket Lawyer series is designed for members of the public who want 'how to' guidance in situations that would normally require expert advice.
Under the Inland Revenue's Rent-a-Room scheme you can earn £4,250 free of tax by taking in a lodger. This book will help you to decide whether taking in a lodger is for you. Once decided, it will guide you through your legal obligations as a landlord, help you choose and vet a suitable lodger and help you draft an agreement that is legally sound and fair for both of you.
