If you are a property owner in the Admirals Cove, Jonathan’s Landing, Jupiter Yacht Club areas, you probably need the services of a reliable home watch company in Jupiter. However, you should be careful not to hire just any company claiming to offer home watch services. Your home watch service provider must be licensed, bonded and insured. The Florida state government does not require home watch companies to be licensed, but it is definitely beneficial for both the client and the service provider that a license is in place. Bonding and insurance are absolutely essential. Here is why you must insist on your home watch company fulfilling all three of these criteria. 

Why your home watch must be licensed, bonded and insured

Bonding is a way for you to be assured that you will be reimbursed if the home watch company doesn’t fulfill its contract. If anything goes wrong and you are unhappy with the service you have been given, you need a way to claim back the fees you have paid. A bonded company enables you to do so. If the company is not bonded, you have no recourse in the event of a dispute and no way to guarantee your money back. 

Should there be any damages, injuries or health problems that occur while the company and its staff are busy at your home, the service provider must have an insurance policy in place that covers the resulting costs. If they are not insured, you can be held liable for the bills.   

Licensing is a legal guarantee that the company meets all the state requirements to carry out the services they offer. When you deal with a licensed service provider, you know you have contracted a company that has gone through the processes and acquired all the training, equipment, and followed all the guidelines to ensure that they can do the job safely and to an acceptable standard.
