Does anyone house share in their own home? I'm 65, and have been running a small B&B in my home for 6 years but am feeling I can't go on for more than another year as I have Type 1 diabetes, M.E., and depression and need to live a less busy life! I love my house and would rather not downsize, so I've been thinking of finding someone to house share to bring in enough money for me to continue to live here. I would be so grateful for any advice and experience, good and bad. Thank you in anticipation!
Bumping this thread I hope you get sound advice. Just be careful of bad renters who might get tenant rights and then stop paying. Someone I know has a condo they rented to a couple. That couple hasn't paid rent in six years and our acquaintance can't get rid of them. He even has to pay their utilities.
You need to think through what sort of house rules you would want. Access to kitchen/bathroom etc? Whether access to the living room is included? Are they allowed to have visitors? Relatives/friends/partners sleeping over?
