I need some advice.  We recently remortgaged and bought a flat for our daughter.  It is 2 bedroomed.  She is a University student.  She wants to rent the other room out for £375 PCM .  My daughter will not be eligible to pay council tax but will the lodger need to?  Also will it make a difference who the monthly rental is paid to i.e. Direct to my daughter or to ourselves.  Will this also have tax implication.

any advice would be welcome.

Sorry, but we’re not qualified to give you financial advice or landlord advice. 

As a tenant’s website, we’re not experts on property management and property investment topics.


We’ve got a great list of websites that ARE, so please, by any means seek advice on this issue there. You can find them in our resources page 


I’d used the resource page many time, there’s some good info in there
