Leaving home UNattended for 1 year - advice please
If anyone can suggest a better place to put this query, please let me know...
I have the opportunity to live abroad for a year - starting in summer of 2007. I would never (EVER) have someone live in my home, but I may be forced to ask my neighbor to look in on the place every few weeks, just to make sure a family of racoons hasn't set up shop in the Livingroom.
I'd like to hear from anyone who's done this, because there are a zillion things to consider, like what do you do with the cars: put them on blocks in the garage with batteries disconnected? Something like that? And I guess the neighbor will have to adjust heat in the winter so pipes don't freeze. I really don't know where to begin, so if you've done this or you know of any good resource materials that I could consult, I'd really appreciate it. Thank you.
