Background checks and traditional full tenant screening cannot realistically be done for short term vacation rental guests due to time constraints, same day bookings, and often times- platform policies limitations. Instead, Home Hosting Partners does thorough searches of all guests registered on bookings via social media profiles, google results, and public records on criminal data sites. Photo ID copies and rental agreements are also signed where applicable. Guests confirm number of guests, house rules, additional info for guests to note, and pets before receiving property access.
