Home-sitting

The Forbes Partnership provides live-in home-sitters to look after fully furnished homes while the owners are away. They safeguard possessions and valuables, and often care for domestic pets too, in line with a detailed brief provided by the client. We keep our home-sitters up-to-date with advice and current topics so that they can provide the best possible service for our clients.

Whatever your requirements, we always provide a home-sitter who is fully qualified for the task at hand – with an extensive network of mature, responsible sitters across London, we can offer a diverse range of skills and experience to meet our clients’ specific needs.

The presence of our home-sitters deters burglars, squatters and vandals, maintaining unrestricted insurance cover and potentially securing reduced premiums. They also guard against weather or water damage and ensure your home is aired and kept in good order, ready to welcome you home at the end of your trip.

Safeguarding your property

Home sitters will:
• carry out their responsibilities in accordance with your instructions.
• be discreet at all times, and fully respect confidentiality
• not leave your home unoccupied for any period exceeding four consecutive hours during daylight or two hours after dark.

• Provide care of your pets at home- this allows your pet/s to remain in their familiar surroundings, following their normal routines
• Accept deliveries on your behalf whilst you’re away

We have a 24/7 backup telephone service in the unlikely event of a carer/sitter falling ill. If they need to leave for any reason, a replacement matching your requirements will be swiftly organised.
