Require Absent Resident’s Authorization Before Giving Visitor Access to Unit
Residents frequently need you to let friends, relatives, or workers into their units when they aren’t home. But it’s risky to do that since you could inadvertently be letting a criminal into one of your residents’ units. If something happens to the resident or her property, you could be held responsible in a lawsuit. On the other hand, you don’t want to refuse access to a resident’s friend coming to apartment-sit, or to a housekeeper just trying to do her job.
