COVID-19 - how it affects renting


"self contained" vs "room(s)"

Note: due to the effects of COVID-19, some of the information on this page might not currently apply.

What's the difference between "self contained flat or house for rent" and "room(s) for rent"?

  • If you have a whole property to rent (ie no current occupants) and you wish to rent it as a whole to a group of sharers (i.e. on a joint and several contract as opposed to individual contracts for each room), you should advertise as a "self contained flat or house for rent"
  • If you wish to rent your property by the room, advertise as "room(s) for rent".
