We are going to be first time sitters in Feb and have a first sitter staying in our home in March.
So far, all I know through my “dashboard” is to request and send a welcome guide.
From the forum, there seems to be a THS agreement form and a HO check list that is subsequently sent at some point after confirmations.
Am I missing where these forms are located in my dashboard?
Can they be sent together at once upon confirmations?
Hello @HelloOutThere and congratulations for your forthcoming sit and first time inviting a sitter in to your home… @Harris2 and @HelloOutThere the THS agreement document is very rarely used and is not legally binding. It is far better to have great communication from the onset, understanding requirements and issues, having a video call/relevant discussions and making sure it is a good fit for all concerned.
Please also see the attached link to another Forum discussion on this.
A HO checklist email will usually be sent prior to the sit commencing so as to check that everything is prepared ready for your sitter/s. It’s more of a helpful reminder/checklist.
Please also see the attached Forum discussion with regards to a sitter helping the owner prepare for a sit.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask
I’ve completed 50 sits thus far with THS and sometimes receive the Welcome Guide but have never been presented with an agreement/contract. I would be happy to receive the latter but think that would be more appropriate if I was being paid for a sit which I never will as don’t want to accept payment for something that works perfectly well as an exchange.
Hi @Smiley the Agreement was added in the early days of TrustedHousesitters and was only a guide for the two parties to use. It laid out the responsibilities and or expectations, of everyone involved and was not legally binding.
I only ever experienced one pet parent/owner wishing to use and it was helpful in clarifying the sit. I hope that helps.
