    Tenants gf using HMO address for life insurance

    I have a Romanian tenant in a hmo. His Romanian gf has taken out some life insurance using the address . She doesn't live there - she lives in Romania. What are the implications?

    Can't see which country making a difference but strongly suspect someone on the fiddle.

    If someone informed the insurance company they might investigate. I'd return mail, not known at this address

      Sounds like a fiddle to me. The letter got caught in the letterbox and ripped open. I facebooked the person and that's how I found out she's the Ts gf. I phoned the insurance company to tell them I'd never heard of her and she'd never lived there, well not in the last 25 years anyway and she's only 21 so that means she's never lived there.

          I'm not sure I necessarily see a problem.

          Romania is part of the EU.
          EU citizens can shop around and take out insurance in any member state.

          And of course anyone can use an address for post that is not their home, it's often particularly expedient for correspondance in another country.

          Many LLs use a contact address for tenants that is not their home, mine does. (But I do also know his home address).

          It's up to the insurance company terms if they will issue life insurance for a person resident in another country.
          As long as they know she lives in Romania then it's not a problem.


            Thanks Nukecad, my concern is that she is not and never has been a tenant of mine. She lives in Romania but came over here and stayed with the T (without my consent) and got life insurance using my address. I wonder why she didn't get some in Romania as that's her home and she's back there now as far as I know. I just don't understand why somebody would come over here and get life insurance at an address they have nothing to do with and then go back home. It's one of those insurances where if you lose an eye you get so much, a leg so much and if you die a bit more and she's set it up for a long time - until she's 70. I smell a rat but just can't see it.


              Artful - that's what I suspect. If she gets enough legit stuff sent to my address she might be able to convince DWP she lives here when she doesn't.

                I am new here and am renting out a property for the first time. And so I am wondering if there is a company that stands out for landlord insurance?
                Any suggestions much appreciated

                A large tree which is in my neighbours garden has blown over and landed on the roof of my portacabin causing extensive damage.

                No, you are wrong.
                It's possible, but you can't assume it.

                Not that it really matters to you.
                If you have a valid claim (duty of care, negligence and reasonably foreseeable damage), they're liable whether or not they've insured against the likelihood.

                If this was a healthy tree then the only person at fault is Mother Nature and unfortunately this means you will have to repair the damage yourself.

                If you feel the tree was not healthy or there is another reason you believe that your neighbour could have contributed to the falling of the...

                There is no legal requirement for house insurance. I'm not sure that lenders are concerned about public liability insurance. So, whilst it is likely that there is public liability insurance, there may not be.

                The existence of such insurance is irrelevant to who is liable, and, as already...

                Was it predictable? Was it an apparently healthy tree or was neighbour (or you) digging around it or trenching (for example).

                If it is just one of those things, you are responsible. If you caused it, you may be responsible for sorting out your neighbour's problems as well.

                Thank you both. Have had building rebuild cost from a surveyor in Jan for £439k exclusive of VAT. Since my first post we have had a quote from.another broker of £1600, which does make the £780 quote sound good!
