A.

First you must get licensed by the county, then it depends on how you want to rent it. you can wall off the basement or just install a locking door that depends on the type of renter you want to attract.

In actuality, I am interested in remodeling my basement to generate income. 2. I need to know what my community’s zoning laws are and where can I find them. 3. My biggest hurdles is, can it be done legally in my community and what are those necessary legal requirements that will make it happen. 4. I do not belong to a home association in my community so where can I go to obtain a copy of my housing development's bylaws and CC&Rs.
