Earn Money by Renting Out a Room

Still unsure about becoming a host on FlatClub? Let £4,250 worth of tax-free earnings convince you! This is eligible for live-in landlords, which means that you can share a room in your home or an entire floor - all you have to do is maintain residency there. You’re also eligible if you rent out a guest house or run a bed & breakfast. It’s an amazing opportunity to turn your property into cash, whether you rent or own. You can find more info on the official UK government landlord tax allowance page.

The best way to find such lodgers for your property is FlatClub - our guests are verified members of top universities or businesses, in your city on business trips & short courses lasting about 30 days on average. You could build up that income to £4,250 with ease on FlatClub, especially if you take advantage of our LiveDemand service, which allows you as the host to search for the guests that suit you.

This is a great way to earn an extra bit of income for the holiday season. Not only will you make some additional cash to give gifts with, you’ll also be giving a young professional or student the gift of accommodation in your great city - we’ve got lots of interns coming into London and other key European cities, so get in touch with us at for more information.
