Rules and responsibilities of an owner

Am I able to take in a lodger if I have a spare room?

Most Shared Ownership leases allow you to take a lodger, however, you should check with the housing association you are purchasing the property from. It’s also worth noting that the income you receive from a lodger will not be taken into account when assessing your affordability for a property, you must be able to afford to purchase the property and make the monthly costs independently of the income from a lodger.
