    Thank You I agree completely and this is my dilemma. Too little and they will settle, who wouldn't? Too much and they wont be able to afford their own places. Maybe I'll have a 'Deadline day' talk.

      If total rent in a year more than £7500 then needs declaring and tax on it paid.

      (I'm on 6 benefits).. if you are in receipt of any benefit be aware some may be impacted by renting out part of your home and the income you get thereby
      I agree completely and I would never rent a property to a friend or relative. However this was a mercy call from my siblings and they are in my own home.


        You could sneakily, tell them the rent is x amount, when they leave you hand them back (x - expenses).
