Bedikat chametz when one is leaving home for pesach


I am going to the hotel for the entire Pesach. I am leaving on Wednesday night. Do I do bedikat chametz and when do I do it? I sold the chametz to the Rabbi.


You should do a bedika the night before you leave the place, If you are leaving Wednesday night, and you can do it after it gets dark then do it then, If not, do it on Tuesday night. Since you are doing it early you don’t make a bracha. You will have to make a bedikah in the hotel room that you are staying on the night before pesach, and you will make the bracha then.

If you are selling the whole house, and no one will be using it during peasch, according to many opinions, you wouldn’t have to make a bedikah on your house.
