While you know that under the terms of the Ground Lease your Homestead home needs to remain your primary place of residence and you can't rent out or sub-let your home, you can have roommates. If you do have roommates you are a landlord and are required to to abide by local landlord/tenant law. While not all of our homes are within the City of Seattle, here is a good, primer on what your responsibilities are, as a landlord, including the timeline in which you have to give notice to any roommates if you are planning to sell your home.
