Thanks for that info César.

It’s safer/easier to have a long term tenant (if the right guaranties are given) than running your dwelling as a professional business… less controls, less taxes, less maintenance expenses.

What are the guarantees you mentioned? Are they part of a contract between me (owner) and tenant?
Is there anything else you could warn me about for this type of rental, any surprises, ‘strange’ laws etc? Is the contact something I can put together myself or do I have to use a standard contract?
I don’t want to cheat anyone or charge excessive rent, I just don’t want to be cheated myself. You probably understand.
