Why shouldn't my neighbors watch my home?

The neighbors, while well intended, are not setup for a business.  They generally lack the insurance and licensing requirements.  Without proper insurance the home owner has a huge liability risk for having them on their property, if your neighbor gets hurt on while on your property the home owner is legally liable for any medical claims filed by the neighbor.  Another consideration is if they damage anything or forget to lock and secure the home, they lack the insurance to cover losses.

Another consideration is bad actors have the opportunity get to know the schedules of the other residents in the area, which gives them information on the best times to rob you. With weekly visits from a Home Watch Professional that are done at different times, your home will have a more lived-in appearance and would-be criminals will be wary if they know that someone might be coming by unexpected.
