Using property for money


Most of us spend a large proportion of our working life paying for our homes. So when we retire, it’s not surprising that it can be our biggest asset. Here we look at ways to see if this asset can start paying you back by making bricks and mortar work harder for you. 

We’ve included information about all sorts of ways to make income from your property – from taking in lodgers, to renting out a car space and even considering a second property to make income from. Your home could be the key to a more secure retirement.
