Airbnb your home

Instead of letting your home sit empty while you’re not using it, you could rent it out and make some cash.

例如, you could put it on Airbnb.

然而, the exact amount of money you could make depends on where you live, and how in demand your home is.

You can make £7,500 tax-free each year from renting out a room or your home according to government rules.

After you pass this threshold, you’ll have to tell the taxman, do a tax return, opt into the Rent a Room scheme and pay tax on whatever extra you earn above £7,500.

Rea had one client who would rent out her home for six months every year on Airbnb, because she split her time living between the UK and Australia.
We reckon she made about £1,300 from doing this.

Become a landlord

If you’ve got a spare room, then you might want to consider renting it out and becoming a landlord.

We know plenty of people who do this.
The same rules applyyou can make the first £7,500 of your rental income tax free.

But going over this threshold and paying tax could still be worth it as you could make tens of thousands of poundsand it could cover your mortgage.

Rea knows a client who lives alone in a three-bed townhouse.

She decided to rent her top floor out as she never used itshe gets £700 a month, which totals £8,400 a year.

It made a massive difference to her financially.

If you do decide to become a landlord, you need to get clued up on you and your prospective tenants’ rights.

例如, you’ll want to make it clear that money will be taken out of the tenant’s deposit if they have caused extensive damage, draw up a contract and do references and credit checks.

加, you’ll need to check your mortgage termssometimes there are clauses stating that you cannot rent a room out.

This is most commonly the case if you have used the Shared Ownership or Help to Buy scheme.

If your car parking space is empty during the weekdays because you’ve driven to work or you just don’t use it, you could be sitting on untapped cash.

There are apps you can use like Kerb, YourParkingSpace or JustPark to advertise your space and charge drivers for using it.

Tonya rents out a couple of car parking spaces at a property she owns in the centre of Chelmsford, where commuters coming into the town are desperate to find somewhere cheap to park.

She can easily get £100 a month per spaceit’s a great way of bringing in extra income.

在 2022-23, you can make up to £12,300 tax-free under capital gains tax rates.

Make the most of your shed

People who live in the city or a town often have less space compared to what they could get living further out.

It means that many people often need storage space to hold their stuff that won’t fit in their home.

That’s where you could make money out of your own spare space in the loft or in the garden shed.

Tonya has made the most of this demand by renting out garages that aren’t in use at her rental properties.

She can easily get up to £150 per garageyou’d be surprised by how many people need space to store their tools.
