House checking, anyone asked to do it?

I was asked today to check on a customer's vacant house over Christmas. He is one of my better customers. It will be no problem when it snows, since I just have to check the water and heat quickly for consideration, but is there anything I would/should be concerned about from a liability point of view?

we live in a area were there is a lot of vacation homes and many of our customers have us check on their homes, condos, and boats. We charge 35 a month (one visit) if they want more then its $15 more per visit.
Pick up a large outdoor temp gauge and put it inside the front window facing out so you can tell the indoor temp when you drive by.

Big Thermo-bob: gee, thanks. Great Idea. This place has a water-well pump, and the breaker is off already, so all I really need to know is if the heat is still on.

I love this forum. Hee hee.
