When renting out a room in my own home…

I'm thinking about leasing out a room in my own home, but I'm wondering if the laws would be different for this. I know under fair housing laws that various things would be descrimination, but I'd prefer it to be a single adult, professional, etc etc... I'm going to be living under the same roof as this person, so I'd like to make sure we get along and such. Are my hands tied in this by the fair housing law or would this be considered a different situation?
