Default Room Rental Caution

Deciding to rent a room in your home can be a smart financial move. However, TOTV would like to remind its members that caution is necessary when selecting roommates, particularly if the potential roommate is not good friend. Some suggested precautions include arranging initial meetings in public locations, requiring and verifying references and performing a background and credit check.

A quick search on the internet for: "How To Rent A Room In Your Home" will reveal multiple sources of very helpful advice. Good Luck!

You also need to collect Florida State sale's tax and county sale's tax and submit them monthly. In addition, you need a Florida Business License. Your county might require a business license also, depending on what county you live in. It is not a simple thing to rent out a room, or to rent out your house as a vacation property.

Has anyone rented out a room or part of their house? Would you like to share the good and the bad?

A person I know has been renting a room for several months now.

Living with a room-mate can be difficult especially if one has been on their own for awhile. I am certain he is not thrilled with certain things but he is a good tenant.

When renting, the admin advice is good, as one never knows what is the renters agenda, is. Some people can be difficult to put up with.

Caution, is always prudent.

I am getting a divorce and I need a room with bath. That is all no kitchen or a other part of the home. I am overly clean (if that is possible) and I am quite I have my furniture or I can use yours. I need reasonable because my money from support has not begun yet. Connie 352-467-3002
