Be sure to check out the liability since renting out rooms is likely a lot different than renting out the entire house to a group of people who agreed to live together.

I recall hearing about a situation a few years ago where two rooms were rented out a man and a woman and the woman was sexually assaulted by the other renter. The landlord was part of the lawsuits, I didn't hear what happened but since the landlord had selected the renters I would not want to have been in his shoes.
