    I'd like to know how they are going to define the dividing line between long-term and short-term guests/lodgers.

    I've been renting my spare room to students working at a local hospital on placements of a few months - which this tax break encourages.

    There's a real shortage of accommodation around where I live and major congestion/parking issues so I think hosting students within walking distance of the hospital helps the local area too.
