Will House Sitting give me an Insurance Headache?

4th April 2019

It’s a question that often comes up: how will using a house sitter affect my insurance?

Your property is your number one asset, so it’s quite understandable to want reassurance all your things will be covered should anything happen to your home while you’re away.

To bring some peace of mind, our advice is to get in touch with your insurer and have a chat about your circumstances. It’s also essential to use a house sitting provider that vets its sitters. The Housesitting Company does this by following a thorough four-step vetting process that includes a background check by New Zealand Police.
