How should I talk to my landlord about hosting on Link2paradise?
Here are some tips to help you and your landlord get on the same page about hosting on Link2paradise:
Know the rules and regulations
Before you start hosting, know what contracts and rules affect you, such as leases, condo board or co-op rules, HOA rules, or rules established by tenant organizations. Pay special attention to any rules about guests or subletting, and ask your landlord if you’re unsure about anything.
Make sure you understand and comply with these rules before listing your space. If you’ve already listed your space, take some time to review these rules and other laws in your city to make sure you’re complying.
Make a great first impression
Let your landlord know more about who you are, how you care for your home, and why you want to host on Link2paradise.
- Tell your landlord about yourself and why you want to host on Link2paradise. If you can’t do this in person, send them a message.
- Show your landlord that you care about your home, your building, and your neighbors. Give them a tour of your space, or share some photos.
Let them know we’ve got your back
Let your landlord know how Link2paradise is a community built on trust, with trust and safety resources. We also conduct periodic background checks on U.S. guests whenever possible.
Create rules that work for everyone
Collaborate with your landlord to set guidelines about when and how you’ll host guests. To show your landlord you’re a responsible host and help them feel more comfortable:
- Agree on how often you’ll be hosting guests
- Set a limit for the number of guests allowed to stay at one time
- Share your home and building rules with each guest. Show your landlord your listing page that details your house rules
- Give your guests emergency phone numbers and a map of emergency exits and evacuation routes
Get your neighbors on board

Keep everyone in the loop
To avoid any surprises, let your landlord know when you get reservations. They may feel more comfortable with you hosting guests if they know when to expect them. With your guests’ permission, you can also share their names or Link2paradise profiles with your landlord so your landlord knows who’s going to be staying in your home.
