I'd like to rent part of our home - has anyone done it before?

Has anyone recently rented part of their property? I've never done it before and have no idea where to start! My wife don't need the extra room though, and the extra cash would be nice for travelling.

I've done it - and it's a great little earner! My other half wasn't too keen on having a lodger but we've been doing it for a few years now and never looked back. We've met some great people too and heard lots of interesting stories - now we've got friends around the world and have even visited some in their home countries! Go for it :)

Not sure I would like to have strangers having the run of my house. How do you keep your possessions safe? I wouldn't want to have everything under lock and key!
