Council Tax: Only full-time students are exempt from Council Tax. If you accept a Helpful Housemate who is not a student and claim single person discount on your council tax you will lose your single persons discount. To compensate for this loss you can ask non-excempt Helpful Housemates to make a small contribution to your council tax, to assist you with the loss of your single persons discount. This must be discussed in advance when setting the level of rent.
Home insurance: Please contact your Household Insurance company to ensure that your home insurance remains valid if you have a Helpful Housemate (lodger)
