Remember this is a Christian House Sitting Service so we highly recommend that Home Owners obtain a character reference from the House Sitters local church and a second reference.
We also suggest that you draw up a brief agreement based on the following outline. This should be agreed and signed by both parties prior to the house sit. This is to prevent any future misunderstandings.
Agreement entered into between
Name of House Owner
Name of House Sitter
Address of the House Sit
Responsibilities of the House Sitter.
If you have animals please include specific clear details about feeding routine for your animals and how you expect your animals to be exercised.
(If you want the animals exercised at specific times please tell your sitter so they can plan their free time.)
Specify how long you are happy for the house sitter to leave the house and pets unattended?
Owners are responsible for supplying food for their animals and any vet fees that may arise.
CLEANING & GARDENING
Please specify what cleaning you want done in your house each day.
If you require any gardening please specify exactly what you want done.
House Owners cover the cost of Gas and Electricity and House Sitters cover their telephone costs.
If it is going to be a house sit that lasts longer than 3 months and there are no animals to look after you will naturally need come to a prior agreement about these expenses.
Please make it clear if the sitter can use any food that you leave behind and if they need to replace it before you return.This prevents misunderstandings later
Please specify if you are happy for your House Sitter to entertain visitors in your home.
Please make certain that you are not going against any clause in your property insurance. The conditions vary between countries and indeed companies and we have never had a problem but do check. Normally the sitter is regarded as a guest because they are not paying or being paid.
