Click here to download the rental leases and learn how to deliver them.
Developed since 2004, these leases are iron clad and based on actual experience and are the leases that I use for my own rentals and to have an attorney write one up will cost you $1500, and I promise you theirs will never be as robust. Protect yourself from the vague rules and Airbnb's lack of support for hosts. Think of this as your insurance for Airbnb's insurance. These will also give you the freedom & confidence to take direct bookings when you combine them with STR specific insurance for your rental that covers rental losses. Take it one more step and offer your guests a damage protection policy and you will have just as much protection + the best part? You are 100% in control.
These contracts have protected me from squatters & lawsuits and have supported me in Airbnb claims. Defining your policies to this level will serve you and your hospitality business well.
What you get:
🌟 Booking platform lease: written especially for your bookings received through Airbnb, VRBO etc.
🌟 Direct booking lease: This is for guests who want to book directly with you. It covers payment details, security deposits and other protections.
🌟 4 video trainings: How to use the templates, How to implement the leases in your booking process, How to manage guest resistance to signing, How to import the template to 17Hats (a client management software with e-delivery, optional).
You could opt to hire an attorney to write up a rental contract for you, but if that attorney has zero experience with short term rental guests, I guarantee you, there will be gaps in your protection when certain common issues come up, plus again, it will cost you over $1500.
These contracts started as an attorney contract written for a vacation rental company, and since 2005 I have evolved my contract template to include 33 clauses + a pet addendum. It even includes Covid & service animals, pools/hot tubs and the most recent scam, "internet outage refunds".
They are the most robust rental contracts on the market and are 100% editable. You choose which clauses work for you and which don't.
These can work in any state and even most countries because they are customizable.
I will also share the full stack of protections that I use in addition to these leases, which keeps you just as protected, if not more, as booking through Airbnb and their "AirCover" insurance.
