I doubt very much that there would ever be a law suit let alone more than one and again, they would be impossible to prove and would never get to court. I have had multiple claims over short periods of time and never have had my rates increased or insurance dropped. This is a non-worry issue.

It could cost you the defense legal fees if the court considered it a frivolous law suit Stanley. You are going nowhere on this.

Those who do not fit that description are, most likely, not aware of the email we received.
From others that are Relax clients that did receive that email, it makes us wonder how good of a job they were actually doing in the first place. Many, if not all, we're given a list of what should be provided by the home in regards to the quantity, quality of sheets, towels, etc. Colors, patterns, etc, we're left up to the home owners decorating preferences. Now, among other suggestions is to de-personalize your property and go the way of industrializing/mass sharing those items. This would streamline their process, give them control of the items provided and remove the owners opportunity of adding a little Florida charm in favor of industrial uniformity which you have to pay for.
Along with this, stated in what I interpreted as a passive/aggressive way, was the statement that your property would be listed as "sanitized" and somehow superior to others.
I could go on, but will simply say that at a time of uncertainty, while people have many concerns and are vulnerable, this seems a way to take advantage of and manipulate the covid situation at the expense the property owners.
We will not be participating at this time and will be monitoring the situation closely.

We own a short term rental in Northern Michigan. Our condo association is busy complying with sanitizing regulations. This is a sign of the times and you will need to show your rental is “properly sanitized”. This is not just the normal cleaning. We’ve been in the rental business over 40 years. Now is a good time to get rid of them. It’s not worth the liability. I’m sure, if your homeowners insurance knows you rent they will have strict requirements you need to follow. If you take the gamble and don’t tell your insurance agency you are renting, that’s even worse. Don’t fool around. Add the sanitizing to the rent you charge or you chance a lot of liability. Renters are going to expect it.

We own 2 properties which are rented via Realty Executives. When we bought them they were 'partially furnished'. Glad now we decided to give what was left away and rent completely unfurnished instead. Easy to clean. But we rent long-term instead of seasonal and right now I can commiserate. One house has been vacant since Feb and summer ahead.

We recently moved to a new house in Fernandina, from a previous one in St. James.
We are seasonal and rented our house in St. James when not in TV several times, thru
VR4rent with great results, never had to charge one $ against Sec. Deposit.
For info. we had a meeting with REMAX to handle the rental in our new house, especially
about the "Sanitized Program". The meeting went fine, then we got the contract emailed to us. WOW, read all the details CAREFULLY, many things were NOT disclosed!!!
Will NOT use REMAX by our choice, very disappointed to not having ALL DETAILS
disclosed in the meeting.
We plan to continue to use VR4rent

CDC: Virus 'does not spread easily' on contaminated surfaces.
The virus does not stay long on surfaces. That said, the risk would be during the "season" when the time between renters is short, not during the other nine months. The ReMax program might be useful for marketing but too expensive for general use.

If someone wanted to they could just run an ozone generator to sanitize their home Medical Professionals Sanitize COVID-19 Transports with Airthereal Ozone Generators

They are inexpensive $89.00 on Amazon. I use them to clear the air if any guests left an order of some kind (cooking, whatever). Remove it before guests arrive so they don't operate it while the home is occupied.

Ozone generators are why no used car smells like anyone had ever smoked in it.

Smells like after a thunderstorm. One to two days run time gets rid of any odors.

Default Question

Just a question? Isn't a rental property in TV actually business? And I thought no businesses where allowed to be ran from the homes? Very interesting!
