SCDC is running a joint scheme with Solo Housing, matching up householders with a spare bedroom with single people in need of affordable accommodation.
The ‘Lodgings Service’ scheme aims to reduce homelessness by encouraging local people to become potential landlords. It was launched in 2017/18 and has now been extended into the current financial year.
Suffolk Coastal householders with a spare room are being asked to consider whether they could become Lodgings Landlords. Support and information for new landlords will be provided by Solo Housing, including information on the rights and responsibilities of both landlord and lodger; advice on health and safety and other relevant regulations as well as a home visit.
