Live-in Landlord

[lɪv-ɪn ˈlænlɔːd]



A Live-in Landlord lives in the same property as the one they are renting out to tenants. They must ensure it is a safe and habitable place to live.

More detail:

A Live-in Landlord is a property owner who lives in the same property as their tenants. This is usually done by renting out a room. They have similar responsibilities to regular Landlords which include making sure the property is safe and habitable.

Being a Live-in Landlord without owning the property outright can lead to complications or may not be possible.

As a part of the Rent a Room Scheme, these individuals can receive the first £7500 of annual rental income tax-free. Anything over this will require a Self Assessment being submitted. The Rent a Room Scheme does not allow Expenses to be claimed so it might be more tax-efficient to opt-out of this scheme.
