Yes. Some members require a signed contract or rental agreement prior to the reservation start date. This contract would be between the lender/seller and the renter/buyer and in no way implicates BizBiz Share.
For lender/seller If you require a renter/buyer to sign a contract, you must disclose the actual contract terms to them prior to booking. The easiest way to do this is to mention the contract in your listing’s description, and include the terms in your message thread with the renter/buyer.
BizBiz Share can’t help enforce any special policies in your contract.
Lenders/sellers may ask you to sign a contract, but they must disclose this requirement and its terms prior to booking.
If you’re not comfortable with the contract, you may want to discuss your concerns with the lender/seller or look for another resource.
If your host asks you to sign a contract that you weren’t notified about before you made the reservation, you can decline to sign the contract and ask your lender/seller to cancel your reservation instead.
