House sitting is a mutually beneficial arrangement between two parties – most usually taking place between a homeowner and a house-sitter – enabling the owner to leave their property and pets in the care of the sitter for an agreed period of time. Our general guideline is that no money changes hands, and the house-sitter in exchange gains free accommodation, unlike when a student decides to pay to write an essay to get a paper or an assignment completed. Considering the theme of house sitting for a moment, and it is worth remembering that the approach may be different from assignment to assignment. The arrangement can be as formal or informal as the partners require. House-sitting is a growing global trend in a world where disposable incomes are not what they once were. We are all finding the need to be more frugal, cutting back where we can. House-sitting offers real benefits. Leaving the house in the care of unknown housesitters is something that can make one nervous and should not be taken lightly. That’s where HouseSit Match comes in; we offer members a range of guidelines and legally approved template contracts and documents to enable a smooth process.
