Great and interesting information. Thank you. Horst
good info, i am in the process of renting to two wedding parties this summer
We state in our terms
We have on our website, premises/pool are for registered guests only. When providing confirmation, we add, we look forward to sharing our home with them and the guest in the other unit (no outside visitors), so their visit will be private, and relaxing.
This was very helpful, and I have run into all of these. I err on the side of protecting the property and have NOT rented to large groups, extra people, "spring break" groups, pet owners. No need to have hassles, repairs, etc. NOTE: the "Read More" link works. The other link to this section does NOT work. Thanks, Caryl
I have started requiring guests to give me a description of the cars on the contract and limit the number to 6. Once they arrive, if there are any changes, I note it on the contract and make them initial the change. Most hotels require you to list the vehicle that you are keeping parked in the their parking lot so me requiring it is no different. This has cut down the "Visitor" issue tremendously. I have a rental property near me where there are about 10-15 cars most weekends. Nothing but parties and trouble for the owner all the time.
Great advice! I have received inquiries that mirror everything you have listed and fortunately listened to my "gut".
