Lance King’s answer

My understanding of your question is that you are looking to rent a room in someone else's house and be their roommate. If that is correct, Eric's advice to go to craigslist is right. Their website is http://www.craigslist.com -look under the Housing categoty for rooms/shared or sublets/temporary. If that is not your question if you clarify I'm sure we'd all be happy to help.

If you do seek to sublet, be sure you check your lease to be sure that if restricted, you seek the consent of your landlord. If you are allowed to sublet, be sure that you enter into a written sublease with the subtenant which priovides (1) a statement that their subtenancy is not subject to the Rent Ordinance; and (2) a statement setting forth the amount of rent you pay under the lease. Without a written agreement setting forth the above, you will lose rights should you and your roommate not get along in the future.

Craigslist short-term rentals is by far the best manner. If you need any help, I'd be happy to assist free of charge.

It's really the best place to look, and if you're new to the city, again, I'd be happy to assist you.

Just visit craigslist.org for more info. In fact here is the exact link http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sub/ for the craigslist sublets and temporary housing.

There's also a section where you can list what you're looking for called "housing wanted."

Good luck and again, let me know if I can help in any way.
