    I'm thinking about renting my basement out as an apartment. It's already set up for someone to live there and has a separate entrance. I have never been a landlord before, can anyone give me some pointers as to what to look for in a tenant? how to word the advertisement and such? thanks for any help.
    oh, howard related because he rents an apartment in NYC lol

    Everyone I've known that has done this, has had nothing but headaches. I'd tread cautiously .... :ucoffee:

    Hey Cygnus, how's it going? You back on the dating scene yet, or you just chilling solo for awhile?

    You want a tenant who pees sitting down and doesn't drink milk.

    Airtight agreement and S&W. Renters are a pain in the ass. I'd never rent a room in my house.

    People often times put on a good front ... then, they get in your home & you find out they're alcoholics, don't pay rent, etc. and it's near impossible to get them out ... think of it - your home should be your sanctuary. Not a place of headaches. I'd be very cautious ....
