It Can Happen
As a word of caution for those who are considering running their own bed and breakfast or even home owners themselves in general, you really never know when something major can happen to your house and you always want to be safer than sorry if you can afford to do so.
Before my husband and I bought our current home, we were renting our first house here in America which we neglected to do the proper research on before we signed the lease (yes, out of all people I did this) and we ended up paying the price for it later on.
What May Seem Small
When we first moved in, we noticed that there were a few shingles that started to look like they were a little bit past the point of fading and might slowly but surely become a major issue. We notified our landlord and he assured us that everything was in proper order and that there was nothing to worry about. Of course, we didn’t take the advice that I have been talking about on here so far and never asked to see any paperwork to prove that this were the case.
About two months later, a real bad storm blew through our town and ripped that worn out part of our roof right off. Luckily, the tear wasn’t big enough to cause any leaking on the inside of the house and none of our belongings were damaged but needless to say, we were not happy tenants.
Because we were renting we were obviously not responsible for having the roof repaired and it was up to our landlord to find the licensed & insured contractors here at Superior Roofing, Siding, & Gutters – Top Rockford Roofers to come and ensure the work was done properly.
You can look at owning a bed and breakfast like you are a landlord for your guests stay. Just like our landlord, you are responsible for all damages and work done to your house and this is something you want to avoid doing at all costs. Not only can this ruin your guests entire stay, it can hurt your business in the long run!
