In the budget last year George Osborne announced that there would increased tax benefits for people renting out a room out to lodgers.

From April this year the people renting out a room will be able to earn up to £7,500 tax free, an increase of £3,250 from last year. It’s the first time this threshold has been moved since 1997.

This change in the law has meant that homeowners are starting to view their properties as a means of topping up an income.
