    Hi!

    Well, the best thing would be if you could contact some institutes that have people coming in from out of town and ask for permission to put up notices on their notice boards. Of course that would depend n what profile you are looking at. If its univ students or doctors or people from any other sectors, you would put up your notices in the relevant places.

    Also, you could advertise your space in the newspapers.

    You need to decide what are the services you will provide to the pgs- will food be inclusive? Who will clean/ laundry...all of this has to be factored in before you offer your space for rental.

    It would also be sensible to have someone (maybe yourself or you'll have to employ someone) to oversee the paying guests.

    Put it up in Ad mags and free classifieds in clickin etc. Secondly you must have people arranged for the following chores-
    1. Cleaning the house
    2. Cooking
    3. Care taker if people come in at night and to manage discipline.
    4. Once a month cleaning of the entire house.
    5. Decide on rules on what purpose the proprty would be used.

    students would be a good target. So do ur advertising near colleges where students from other places are concnetrated, or near where some private companies are working etc etc. So that u can get those employees

    people should know that u are looking for it. also u must have a good reputation. Cos first things those are interested to be in paying ugests is that they will enquire about you to the neighbours

    Also decide the limit of the paying guests who will be staying.

    There are few things which u must take care though. If u are living alone, be very careful about ur selection of paying guest. U are going to give this person a lot of reach into ur home, and thats very dangerous if this person is not trustworthy. So enquire as much about him as possible.

    Good choice.. now all u have to do is let people know about accomodation.
    As a frist step use word of mouth to spread it.. tell everyone u know, especially ur friends, relatives and colleagues that there is place to rent

    being a paying guests is something which others will also prefer, cos it has higher sense of safety than staying otherwise. So u will easily get people. Just make some ads.. try newspapers, or local tv chans

    Obtain complete information including the telephone and postal contacts of guests.
    Ask for two or more references with complete contact details.
    Try to contact on the land phone at an odd time and ask for the details to verify.
    Ask for a token advance to ensure that the seeker is genuine.
    Try to educate the prospective guest about your conditions and preferences in advance so that there is no misunderstanding later.
    Try to report to local police/tourist assistance cell about the arrival of a paying guest and adhere to all legal requirement of your land to be safe in all respect in admitting a person in your premises.
    Collect and keep a photograph, copies of passport or any such documents and try to get a hand written and signed application from the guest on arrival.
