Misuse of the Site

Housesitting is a mutual arrangement, directly between House Sitter members on this site and Homeowner members of this site only. The site may not be used to propose House Sitters who are not members of this site.

House sitter members may not use this site for deceptive business practices and your profile must be accurate and true representation.

If you are unable to fulfil your commitment to the Homeowner you must give the homeowner notice and use all possible means to contact the Homeowner. Many Homeowners have already committed to airfares, and dates and cannot be let down. When you make a commitment with the homeowner you should swap all alternate contact methods, so communications can be kept open at all times.

Violations of the conditions of the site can result in suspension of your ad and/ or cancellation of membership without refunds.

House Sitters must take their agreed responsibilites and commitments seriously. This include home, pet and Garden care.

We strongly recommend the supplied housesitting agreement is signed by both sides. A tempate is provided in the members dashboard help area. This can be customised to fit the indidual House Sit.

Homeowner Housesit Postings

Home owners may only post Housesits for your own home. Postings of behalf of other Homeowners are not permitted.

Home owners must give full disclosure of the condition of their home, number of pets, requirements, and any other factors that impact the decision of the House Sitter to commit to the housesit. In other words the House Sitters should not be surprised to find things are not as expected when they arrive. It is strongly recommended that the homeowner supplies photos of the inside of the home and surrounds to the housesitter.

House Sitting Complaints

House sitting complaints (from House Sitter or Home Owner) should be submitted via the Contact form. The complaint should be objective and in point from with evidence.

Housecarers takes all complaints seriously. We receive responses from both sides. Housecarers may terminate the membership of Homeowner or Housesitter where it is evident either side is unreasonable, unfair or negligent.

Housecarers cannot provide legal advise and will not arbitrate on complex cases. In these cases the parties should seek independent legal Advise.
