Hello. Does any one use a rent agreement in addition to the one on Outdoorsy? I have an Airbnb and after talking with a lawyer about renting my home to short term guests, I was enlightened by the amount to liability I was exposed to. Airbnb does a great job of protecting me, but there are a lot of things I found out that could help protect me by using a seperate rental agreement. The last thing I want is something to happen and have a renter come after everything I own. I already but the camper in an LLC, but do I need to have a separate rental agreement to add an extra layer of protection? Is anyone using one? Does anyone have a lawyer that might specialize in something like this? TIA
I copied one I just found online and made some edits. I'm not providing this for anyone to use, but wanted to share in case you want to make your own version, have thoughts on how to improve or ideally there is a lawyer who could give some input. I put the name 'Bilbo Baggons' where you would put your own name.
