It is important to note that once you have confirmed the dates of your sit and your sitter has confirmed their travel plans, both parties have made a commitment to each other and any change to this will cause undue upset and possibly have financial implications for your sitter.
If circumstances outside of your control force you to return home, please consider that you have a duty of care to ensure your sitter is not left without accommodation.
Remember, your sitter has made plans, may have booked time off work and allocated their travel budget based on the agreement you made when you invited them to sit for you. We therefore advise that although you may be experiencing difficult personal circumstances you should be considered in negotiating a solution to mitigate the affect of your unexpected arrival.
