Time for another answer to a reader question. Do we have to do yard work, etc?
The short answer is Nooooooooooo! Since every house we stay in is meant to be a short term stay, the home owner has the responsibility for exterior home maintenance.
We do clean up after our dogs and pick up trash that may blow into the yard. Anything further than that falls to the owner to do or hire to be done. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind doing some outside work at some of the houses, but we’re can’t travel with lawn equipment and such items are not usually available at the houses.
Most of the home owners have hired a lawn maintenance company to do the work. The rest do it themselves. If there’s a fairly simple outside repair that can be done without spending money, we’ll do it ourselves if there is no monetary cost.
There you go. Another question answered.
