Concrete Driveway Damage from a oil leak from a tenant
We have a current tenant that their vechile leak an oil stain on our clean concrete driveway. We have it on video and we are not sure if we are to submit a damage claim or send a clean up bill to the tenant. We can see they tried to clean it with out success on the video.
Good news is they stopped parking in the driveway and are parking on the street now.
@Wendellyn0 Curious what you ended up doing here. My guest left and we found a huge oil leak on our driveway - was going to charge the guest but don't expect him to pay. Did you end up submitting a claim? Jessica
I think you should charge the guest for the cleaning of the oil leak damage. Oil leaks are very hard to remove. I think is terrible that this is one cost has to be absorbed by the host. Airbnb is different than a hotel. We usually only have one space to rent not 100s of rooms and we don't have a crew to fix things on a daily basis. The appearance of our properties is extremely important and having a driveway with oil leaks because of a careless guest is not ok. If I were a guest and arrived at a property where the driveway has a whole bunch of oil leaks, would give me a bad impression.
@Wendellyn0 This is between you and the guest. Oil leaks happen, and the guest has moved their car to the street so they will not further stain your driveway. Cars leak...AirBnB will not reimburse you for this.
