Creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere in your home is vital for successful house-sharing. Your housemate knows that you own the home, but we want them to feel at home. Being clear about expectations, chores and contributions can help foster a sense of community. This approach encourages your housemate to take pride in and care for your home.

"I must commend The Room Xchange for addressing all aspects of house-sharing with The Complete Homeowners Guide to House-sharing including procedures and agreements. It's crucial not to 'wing' such an arrangement, as it can lead to complications. By following the proper steps from the beginning, you'll not only gain peace of mind but also ensure that everyone involved is aligned and informed."

Sharon Givoni

"This guide is excellent! It's a thorough resource filled with the right information to help you get started in your house-sharing journey. Based on my own experience of house-sharing for 20+ years I agree that the arrangement must be a 'Mutually Beneficial Living Experience' with a 50/50 approach to responsibility. You are not a landlord and tenant; you are a housemate and friend."
