I am in Pinellas County Florida. I am considering renting out a room/bath to a non-relative in my residence of 14 years. I am the owner/resident of this property, and will remain here. Can a homesteader lose their homestead exemption by renting out a PART of it? If so, how does that affect thousands of Airbnb customers and other vacation "hosts" who rent out rooms to vacationers and who pay agencies to find customers for these spaces? Two lawyers told me I would lose my exemption and to hire a lawyer to help me "sort it all out." Sorry if I am asking an old question, but I want to make sure I don't make a mistake. Thank you.
