This can be a real problem, especially if it`s just you and your subtenant, as you can quickly feel undernumered in your own home. So what can you do? Have you found your new tenant? Now it`s time to discuss how things will work. The fact that the bills are only in one name doesn`t change that, and it`s not a problem if you only want to keep the house in your name.
