Hi Guys,

I have recently received the deposit for renting my house as Ryder Cup Accommodation which is being hosted in Chaska Minnesota in September 2016. I requested and received a 10% booking deposit and a 10% security deposit up front. The security deposit only comes to $2,600,, is the enough?

They are staying for 9 nights (short term rental). I have not mentioned anything about utilities like phone bills, electric, heating, should this be taken from the security deposit or should it be included in the rental price?

Thank you

Ava

Utilities should be included in total price. You will not bill separately for only 9 days.

Security deposit sounds more than sufficient. Screen your tenants well and you should be fine.

Good luck.

Hi Redford150,

Thank you for the feedback,,, I might instruct our landline phone company to restrict outgoing calls to national only. I think this homeowner has any utility cost well covered in the rental price -- $50,000 - [crazy]WOW [crazy] http://www.accommodationfortheevent.com/rydercup/2016/rentals/1444013969956/

I did not realize you were including a phone. Most rentals do not have a phone line included for free. Hotels charge outrageous prices for calls made from room.

The phone bill does break down toll calls by date. This would be easy too separate. The phone calls can be charged. Most visitors would likely use their personal cell phones. I would be surprised if you saw many calls. However, I think you should limit calls within the state, not just the whole country. If they want to call out of state, they can use their own phones.

Good luck.
