Vacation Rental Housekeeping Legalities

It is no surprise that after a group has rented one of your vacation homes, it is in need of a professional inspection, cleaning and sometimes maintenance.

So, who do you hire for the job?

Well in this economy, most people are looking to hire those who are efficient and work for less, and in an ideal world that would that would be the most cost efficient way. However, in doing so, you may be subjecting yourself to hiring individuals who are not legally permitted to work in California or more often the IRS says they should be your employee, not a contractor. This may cause a world wind of fines and legal fees coming your way and could later cost you more than you originally thought when hiring the individual.

Listed below are six reasons why it is a liability to hire an unlicensed or illegal worker as a “contractor”:

1      You will be liable to pay State and Federal taxes

2      You will be liable to purchase Workers Comp insurance

3      You might not be compensated if something goes missing

4      You might not be compensated if something gets damaged

5      You are liable if the housekeeper gets hurt

6      You are at risk: subjected to losing your professional license, legal fees, and more.

For instance, San Diego Resort Rentals and Services, partners with Quality Care Services for such services as  inspections after guest departures, professional cleaning, mid stay cleans, personal services, deep cleaning, turn over services, maintenance, and more!
