What is a house share?

If at least two people who aren’t part of a couple share the facilities in a house, that would be classed as a house share. While rooms such as the bathroom, kitchen and living room are shared, each person in the house will have their own bedroom. House shares are often referred to as HMO’s (Houses in Multiple Occupation).

What are the benefits of shared housing?

Shared housing offers a number of great benefits, such as:

  • Shared costs

    Rather than paying all the bills yourself, everything is shared by people living in the house. That includes rent, council tax and utility bills, making it much more affordable.

  • Good company

    Living alone can get lonely, while a house share means you are never alone. From watching TV and eating together, to going out and sharing your day, having some company makes all the difference.

  • Less cleaning

    Cleaning your own house takes up a lot of your time, but with a house share you focus on your room and share cleaning responsibilities with the rest of the house, freeing up more of your own time.

Types of house share

Common types of house share include:

  • Student house share

    Students attending a local university often share a house together, splitting rent and other bills to make costs more manageable.

  • Professional house share

    People with professional careers live in house shares to lower living costs. It allows them to save and put money towards a deposit for a house.

  • Live-in landlord

    This is when a tenant rents a room in a house the landlord also lives in. If you need anything fixed then you don’t have to wait long for it to be resolved.

  • Sublet

    House sharing can also happen when you rent a room from someone who already pays to rent the room from a landlord. This is called subletting and can only happen with the landlord’s agreement.
