Who has your Keys?

Here are some stories of what can happen if you do not Hire a professional trained Home Watcher that is Insured.
I guess my home watcher does not realize that the new alarm I installed alerts me when he arrives and when he leaves. Does it take longer than 5 minutes for a visit? I figured that the home watch person was storing stuff in my garage, but I let it slide. Once I came to my villa in the middle of summer. When I arrived, someone was staying there. The home watch person was renting my property when I was not there! There was a water leak that caused a lot of damage. My home watch provider did not even begin to know who to call for repairs or what to do. I had to cut my European vacation short to fly to Florida to handle everything myself. We purchased our dream condo in the spring. You know, the home meticulously cared for and barely used. We hired the home watcher and headed back north in early June. We returned in October to find our dream condo destroyed by mold! The insurance company denied the claim for a remediation that exceeded $30,000. That is the clean-up cost. We had to purchase new furniture, artwork, etc.. It turns out that the home watcher did not even have insurance! Our dream turned into a nightmare.
