Renting rooms to foreign students is an option well considering if you have a spare room in your property, or you have numerous rooms that you rent out. Moving to a new country can be daunting for anyone, especially those leaving their families for the first time, and so it can be very rewarding to rent to foreign students.
When you rent a room to a foreign student, there are several things you need to provide to ensure the environment is a safe and welcoming one. This includes a key, so they can come and go as they please, clean towels and bedding, which should be changed and washed regularly by you, as well as meals – breakfast, lunch and dinner, unless they are eating at university. You should also make sure that their room is comfortable and clean. It is a good idea to provide a desk and a suitable chair so that they have an area for studying. They also need storage for their books and clothes, and the room should have ventilation and natural light, just as you would provide for your own family. Just as you are making an effort to ensure your tenant feels comfortable, anyone looking to find room for rent needs to be respectful of your home too. It is a good idea to explain the house rules regarding the likes of smoking, alcohol consumption, and if there are any rules regarding coming and goings in the evenings.
