The “renting your home” craze has sparked a debate over the rights of tenants and landlords to share space. The conflict is breeding lawsuits, evictions, and other complications with housing markets. Before you rent out your home while on vacation, make sure you’ve considered all these important legal matters!

What’s your liability?
It’s important to know your rights when renting property, and it can be tough remembering all the different types of insurance that may apply.


Be aware of local municipal codes

Protect yourself from destructive guests
