Rent a room
Rent a room relief is an optional scheme that lets you receive up to £7,500 (increased 6 April 2016, from previous limit of 4,250) in rent each year from a lodger, tax-free. This only applies if you rent out furnished accommodation in your own home.
If you rent out property, you can deduct a range of costs before declaring your taxable income. These include the wages of gardeners and cleaners, and letting agency fees.
