Q1) To help cover household bills in parents' absence, can an adult son, with parents' agreement, assume role of Landlord in letting a room to a tenant/lodger? [since parents, as non-resident, wouldn't be eligible for Rent a Room (RAR)scheme].
OR, would they have to charge him a (below market?) rent and, he in turn, sublet to the tenant?
Q2) Would answer to above be different if there was a mortgage on property?
Q3) Is it legally acceptable to rent a room out at, say, 350 pcm for accommodation (to fall within annual RAR threshold) and then son + tenant separately share utility bill costs? Many thanks.
