We all like to make a little extra cash, and by renting out your spare room this can easily be done with a home sharing service such as Airbnb. 

However, you as a homeowner and as the occupier of the property owe anyone who visits you a duty of care to make sure they aren’t injured through your own fault.

Therefore, before embarking on this latest cash making exercise, please ensure that your property is suitable to be rented!.  It may also be wise to check with your household insurers to make sure that you are covered!
