what is house sitting and who are we?

Hello from us!

 

 

House sitting is the practice whereby a landlord (or "homeowner"), leaving their house for a period of time, entrusts it to one or more "house sitters", who by a mutual agreement are entitled to live there rent-free in exchange for assuming responsibilities such as taking care of the homeowner's pets, performing general maintenance (including pools, lawns, air-conditioning systems etc.), keeping trespassers off the property, readdressing the mail, and in general, making sure that everything runs smoothly just as if the owner was at home.

Kingdom House Sitters is a global house sitting website introducing homeowners from around the world to potential Christian house sitters. A homeowner will benefit by having someone trusted to look after their home, while the house Sitter will get free accommodation in the destination of their choice, be it for holiday, mission or other purposes. House sitting allows for less risk while the homeowners are away including deterring burglary and avoiding problems with frozen pipes and coming back to major unknown issues.

House sitting is a practice gaining more and more popularity. Kingdom House Sitters aims to offer comprehensive advice and support for house owners and house sitters who are new to this concept. You can also access standardised templates of contracts on the internet that could legally (in many countries) secure the arrangements mutually agreed.

Kingdom House Sitters aims to check as best we can, that the housesitters are practising Christians, that they should care for and look after the homeowner’s home in a way appropriate according to Biblical lifestyle. Whilst we can never guarantee that the house sitters will be perfect, we believe that those who are truly following Jesus Christ will aim to bless homes, pets and people.

 

'committed, caring and considerate house sitters'

Kingdom Housesitters is a Community Interest Company, introducing home and pet owners to Christian house sitters who will look after your home and pets while away. We are a ministry with primarily social objectives, whose surpluses are principally reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community. Our sitters are Christians, and in our experience, they generally demonstrate the necessary attributes of being committed, caring and considerate house sitters. Our goal is that housesitting is a beneficial and enjoyable experience for both parties.
