An Unoccupied Home is a Vulnerable Home.
Things can, will and do happen. It’s not a matter of IF. It’s a matter of WHEN!
What If… …your neighbor forgets to check the home during your absence and there is a leak? …your air conditioning system stops to work in the middle of summer? …the residence, above you, has a flood? …the pool guy leaves the hose running and your pool overflows? …you forgot to turn the water off and the toilet leaks? …creatures find their way into your home and make it their own? …you left food in your fridge and there is a power outage? Contact us – Before your WHAT IF becomes a WHEN!!
“Who do I trust with my keys?”
- Are they trained?
- Do they have a “real”, fully credentialed, business?
- Do they have insurance?
- Are they background checked?
- Is this a business or a hobby?
Nothing says Unoccupied Property more than piled up deliveries and fallen palm fronds.
When it comes to Homeowners Insurance…
All seasonal residents should review their homeowner’s insurance policy regularly. There is often language in the policy that can lead to the denial of a claim if the unoccupied home is not watched over. If there is a claim, they will request documentation of every visit. The insurance carrier may even dictate the frequency of the Home Watch Visit.
