For many years, an individual can receive income from the letting of one or more rooms in their only or main residence up to £4,250 free of tax.

The Budget has increased this relief to £7,500 from 6 April 2016, the first increase since 1997.

Care needs to be taken where more than one person is entitled to the letting income and/or where the income is in excess of the relief.
