demand for lodgers to decrease mortgage burden
Todays homeowners are rapidly changing
to lodgers just because they want to decrease the mortgage burden,
reports Gumtree. Landlords over the last 6 months have been advertising
a bedroom to let in their property.
Mortgage holders are having difficulties
meeting their mortgage repayments, over 30 per cent feel this
way, however 12 per cent are saying letting out a bedroom is the
only way out and this will help them financially.
Sophy Silver at Gumtree spoke further,
"Lodgers sharing your home can be an easy way to help curb
"As well as being a lucrative
solution, flatsharing can be a really fun experience for young
professionals looking to widen their network of friends and have
fun while they save their pennies for their own place.
"With the research indicating
that it’s become more socially acceptable for young adults
to flat share for longer, we expect the 'room-to-let' boom to
last for quite a while to come."
Figures have showed that nearly 30
per cent of adults are letting a property in Sheffield and Liverpool.
