Checklist before leaving
Patch.com also has its own share of warnings for property owners.
“Ask a trusted friend or neighbor to check on your house while you’re away.

Hiding a key somewhere or leaving it with someone might be a good idea. In the event of an emergency, it will make access to your home easier while you are away.”
