It is your responsibility to check that your home insurance is up-to-date and that it covers me staying in your home as a housesitter. I ensure that my travel insurance is up-to-date if the house-sit is located outside of the UK.
Before the house-sit, I will ask you to sign and return a housesitter/homeowner agreement, and provide emergency contacts and detailed pet care instructions to make sure that everything goes smoothly!
Payment for housesitting services:
I will send you an invoice via email, upon confirmation of the housesit dates. 50% of the total amount is payable upfront, and 50% on completion of the housesit. This is for my peace of mind as well as yours.
Payment can be made by cheque, bank transfer, Transferwise, or Paypal, and these details will be included on my invoice.
Proof of address and ID:
As well as providing you with a copy of my DBS check, proof of address and photo ID, I will in turn ask you for proof of address and a copy of your photo ID. This protects both of us in this exchange!
