Lodgers, sharers, qualifying occupiers and non tenants

Households in miscellaneous tenures

This section is for households who are not in mainstream types of housing ('tenure'). It is for you if you:

  • are neither a tenant nor an owner
  • share a tenancy
  • are a lodger
  • are what is called a 'qualifying occupier' - this term is explained below.

Watch our housing advice videos. These show how we can help with a range of issues from relationship breakdown, to finding a private let. They explain recent Benefits changes, as well.
If you need any further advice or guidance, please contact us.
