First you should determine if that use is allowed in the zone in which the property is located.  If it is, then you have to get the proper permits to do the renovation work if any is necessary and get approval for rental.  If it is not permitted in the zone, you will first have to get zoning approval, which is more difficult, because you will need a use variance.
