    Rent guarantee for tenant?

    Hi I've just had an email off my tenant to say he forgot to renew his insurance which included rent guarantee I'm a bit confused as I thought only the landlord insured against this, is this correct?

    Thanks

    A tenant could take out income protection insurance so if they were unable to work due to illness/injury they would still be able to pay their rent. Not exactly a rent guarantee policy but the only cover I can think of that a tenant could take out to assist with their rental payments.

    Some tenant's contents insurance policies provide cover for rent that the tenant is legally liable to pay if the home becomes uninhabitable following an incident covered by the contents policy but any example I can think of would also affect the buildings so the landlord's buildings insurance would come into play to provide loss of rent cover.

    Ultimately, only the person receiving the rent (i.e. the landlord) can take out a rent guarantee insurance policy.

  • Malicious damage by a tenant - covered ??

    Hi everyone

    I am thinking of letting out a bedroom in my house, and I also have a small flat that I let out. A recent insurance scare has prompted me to check my levels of cover and malicious damage is something I am deeply worried about as I've never thought about until now (ignorance...

    The broker I work for can be found by clicking my user name and viewing my profile (the clue is in the name).

    It's certainly a grey area and why we have checked this with our insurers. They assure me it is treated as Arson therefore there is only one cause of damage and avoids your legal...

    Hi ashburnham and thanks for the advice. Would you mind sharing which company you work for?

    From the link I gave to the unfortunate sod insured by Zurich, this was the 'get out clause' they used (successfully):

    ""It is established case law that in instances such as...

    7 years ago I had solar panels installed by a Co no longer trading. A recent roof inspection determined this Co had cracked the tiles,without providing adequate underlying protection.
    Can I claim this as vandalism on my buildings Ins?

    It is unlikely your home insurer will cover this. You employed a contractor to do a job so it is bad workmanship by them and not vandalism. Normally any work by trades people is excluded on a home insurance policy so any claim you make will have to be against the contractor. There is obviously no harm...

    Presumably the contractor must have had insurance when the job was done? Do you know who that firm was? Do you have any paperwork?

    I've notified my insurer about the partial ceiling collapse. I don't know if it's due to water damage or just that that part of the ceiling was wek. The building was built in 1880s. The repair bill is - £88 for initial clean up, £500 for repair. Rather than claim through my insurer, can I claim against...

    You can't claim on someone else's insurance, only the policy holder can do that.
    The upstairs insurance won't pay out on a repair to your flat unless the negligence covered by the policy and proven (and that's not really possible - although your agent might be right, that's hardly proof).

    Why was the defaulting owner not sued or threatened with forfeiture? Not having a block policy is likely to make it difficult to sell.

    We had a block policy years ago but one owner refused to pay so we had to take out individual policies with 'insurance to common area'.
