When working from home with a typing from home service there really should not be a need for clients to visit your home as all work should be able to be done online or any queries discussed on the telephone.  

I do know however that there are clients who wish to meet the service provider.  In this instance you should not let prospective clients visit you at home unless you have the right insurance in place.  In this day and age of the postman suing if he trips over your cat(!) it is an absolutely necessity.  

As this is an additional expense, which although tax deductible, is a headache you could really do without,  it would make sense if a client is insistent on meeting you that, you suggest you make an appointment to see them in their office and discuss any matters at their place of business.
