We are in the process of switching insurance companies in order to use Air B&B. They want us to have a written contract with our managment complan. We talked to a couple of people and companies and they generally manage w a handshake in VT.
Does anyone have a sample contract that states cleaning/house checks and stuff like that. The things I am finding on line as templates are WAAAY too complicated for the work that we are actually contracting...
Here's mine, FWIW.
This Co-hosting agreement (herein the Agreement) is between XXX (“Owner”) and YYY, independent contractor, (“Host”) for the leasing/rental of vacation homes, AAA and BBB at <address>. This agreement supersedes all previous agreements.
All bookings will be made via Airbnb, VRBO, or Trip Advisor (Flipkey), unless by specific agreement between Owner and Host. Owner and Host can each accept bookings. Owner and Host will split all rent receipts, 70% to Owner and 30% to Host, regardless of who accepts which bookings. 100% of guest cleaning fees will go to Host. Owner will collect receipts and transfer Host’s share to Host monthly no later than the fifth of each month, by mailed check or direct deposit according to Host’s preference.
Owner may use either or both homes without payment, at will, but will ensure all dates are not booked and are blocked in all calendars in advance of her use. Owner will pay Host standard cleaning fees for cleaning during and/or after any such use.
Host will not advertise or otherwise market the property.
