I’ve never seen any book on this topic. You might find some magazine article if you search through an index at your local library. Or if you find some magazine index to search on the internet.
I had house-mates for years. It’s actually easier than having properties you rent out, because you are right there to get the rent every month.
My suggestion: interview the person. Talk about cleanliness level expectations. Talk about what other expectations each person has re: sharing meals, sharing food, sharing the refrigerator, doing things socially, moving out of the living spaces when guests come over, etc. You should see how the person lives now. Will that be suitable for you?
Since you know this person, perhaps this not relavant: take in only somebody you feel positive about. If you have a “neutral” or “ech” feeling about the person, the answer has to be no.
