Hosting a Nanny Share as a Renter

We have an on-the-books nanny share and live in a condo building (we are renters). A meddling neighbor has suggested that this poses liability to the HOA in case of a slip and fall or similar. The HOA doesn't allow businesses in the building, and knowing that a household employee situation could technically be considered a business enterprise, I'm worried she's going to try to force us to find an alternate childcare situation. (We are doing a nanny share instead of daycare for covid safety, and meanwhile everyone else in the building is working from home, so it seems quite unfair to target us. There haven't been any complaints or issues with the nanny share being in our apartment.) Anyone have any experience with hosting a nanny share in a condo building or insight into liability to the HOA from a nanny share? Ideally I could tell her that something pre-existing indemnifies the HOA so she won't try to torpedo this setup or call our landlord and try to get us kicked out. Thanks in advance for any advice!

Hi Bay Area Parents,
I'm a new parent and was researching nanny share arrangements. I read on the BPN website that: "The CCLD regulations do not specifically address a situation where the childcare provider comes to the child's home, even if she/he is caring for children from more than one family. As long as the care takes place in the home of one of the children, and no one who lives in the home is providing supervision or care, then a CCLD license is not required."
I'm concerned my landlord may try to prevent me from having a nanny in my home provide care for my child and a friend's child or alert the CCLD that we are "operating a day care without a license." Does anyone have additional resources or experience on this topic? Have any parents successfully argued this position? Any help or guidance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks!May 2, 2018
