Sometimes to clear up any misunderstandings it’s simply a matter of clarifying the Householder and Sharers’ expectations. Sharers are well briefed on how best to settle into the Householder’s home with minimal disruption.

The Sharer is also advised not to give notice on their previous accommodation during the first month in case they need to move back. However, they may have a friend they can stay with at short notice. This makes it easier for the Householder to end the match during the trial period. After the trial period the Sharer should be given a month’s notice. If there is an allegation of gross misconduct naturally no notice is required.

If the Sharer decides to move out but the Householder wants to continue Homesharing, the Co-ordinator will search for another Sharer.
