This is a matching site for Hosts and Homemates to find compatible homeshare partners. It is not a dating site and must not be treated as such. Refrain from asking any inappropriate questions beyond what would be expected in interviews for homesharers.
Our Homeshare arrangement clearly states the offer of a room negotiated at a price between £58-£81 per week (£250-£350 per month) in exchange for up to 8 hours of help or company. Please refrain from asking for more money in return for reduced hours as that goes against the ethos of the site and makes the accommodation unaffordable.
Everyone on the site is here to try and find someone compatible to live with to enhance their lives and benefit others. Treat everyone with the respect they deserve.
No-one wants to be demeaned or be made to feel bad. Please refrain from insulting anyone's personal traits or preferences, even if they are very different from yours, or from making libellous or threatening comments. This will not be tolerated.
Trust is all important. People want to express themselves freely, and open debate particularly in the community groups is encouraged. But everyone should feel confident that nothing will be shared beyond the internal messaging system or private community groups.
If someone does not wish to reveal more of their personal details, or supply their contact details outside of the site, refrain from trying to persuade them.
Do not use this site to solicit financial or other assistance of any kind beyond the specifications of the living arrangement, as detailed on the Benefits page.
This is not a space for self-promotion, and irrelevant links are not allowed.
During a homeshare both parties must act appropriately and honestly in honouring their contract. Making unreasonable or inappropriate demands that were not pre-agreed, or behaving in a way that makes someone feel threatened or uncomfortable is not acceptable. We reserve the right to ban from the site anyone suspected of acting in these ways.
