Running a business from home
Running a business from home is becoming increasingly common, it is estimated that currently one in four people now carry out some kind of work from home. There are many types of business that a tenant could run from home without causing any difficulties. For example, there would rarely be a good reason to prevent a tenant from using their home as an office for an Internet or phone based business. However, the proportion of social housing tenants who work or run businesses from home is still much lower than in the population in general.
