Gavin Merritt has five years of house sitting under his belt. He sums it up: „What`s interesting (and I know it`s just perception) is that we love a lifestyle of trust and esteem. That`s why the house and the pet are so well seated. A questionnaire encourages this lifestyle for us, while contracts and home residence contracts divert attention. We believe that relationship building works better than any written word has ever done. If you want to take a look at some residency contracts and related documents, you`ll find that most of the most important platforms have useful downloadable resources. They usually find them on their websites or in their „member areas.“ Eden Rudin, a long-time goalkeeper, gives him a perspective. „I`ve never used contracts and I haven`t been asked to do that. Most of the time, because we are not people in the countries where we are, it would be quite difficult for everyone to take legal action against us. We also had a very good communication with our owners. We are not embarrassed to ask the difficult questions when we are sitting, so we don`t feel we need them.
But an exception would be for me to sit in the United States, where we are residents. Here I would have an absolute contract just because the culture of complaint is so common. It seems that a contract or agreement can really focus on the owner and occupant of the house to ensure that there are no misunderstandings, especially during the first missions. The international platform Nomador uses a standard contract based on the „Lending for Use Contract of Articles 1875″ and which follows the French Civil Code. Can we do this without the need for a formal treaty or an agreement? While the form is not mandatory for our members, we actively encourage them to use the in-house agreement form, it absolutely helps the parties ensure clear communication early in the meeting. Nat Smith confirmed by Travel Lifestyle Plan. „If a caretaker or owner finds calm and therefore confidence in a signed agreement, then they absolutely must use one. However, if one of the parties feels that they are following their instincts and relying on the essence of the benefits of fair win-win exchange of the seat, the only documentation required is a manual or instruction manual. It is difficult to plan anything during the developing pandemic, but one thing we can be fairly sure of is uncertainty. At present, there is no guarantee that repeated closures will not result in the demolition of a seat for reasons not controlled by the owner or custodian.
