It's important to know what to do to get along when you're living with others, whether you're sharing with family, your partner, friends or total strangers.  It's equally important to understand what your rights are if things go wrong. 

Sharing a rented home can work out really well. It makes things a lot cheaper, but can also bring its own problems.

Splitting up with a partner is always painful. You may be tempted to just walk away without thinking about what will happen to your home if you split up. This isn't a great solution. You could realise years later that you have made a costly mistake, especially if you owned your home jointly.

It may not be romantic but it is vital that you know your rights when it comes to your home. Preparing properly will make sure that you are less likely to be caught out if anything happens to your relationship.

It can be difficult living with your parents or guardians, particularly if you feel like you're old enough now to live on your own. However, living on your own is expensive and difficult. Work out if it's easier to resolve your problems at home or if you're ready to move out on your own.

Letting a room in your home to a lodger can be a good way to make extra money. However, you need to make sure that you've got permission to do this.
