    My tenant want to take in some language students

    My tenant who rents a whole property from me, wants to take in Language students on a regular basis in Hastings. There are a lot of Language schools in hastings.
    Where can I get the correct insurance to get this covered.
    The insurer I am with at the moment is not happy.

    On a different point,
    Why should you allow someone to make a profit from letting out YOUR rooms.

    I would, if it were me, say fine, if they are feeling caring, but they sign an A.S.T. or whatever, and you vet them, and they pay rent to you.
    Otherwise your tenant then becomes the students Landlord, and the students landlord has to take out landlord insurance cover, which we all know they wont.

      It's one of those situations where the widely held belief, that it's always the responsibility of whoever had the leak who ends up paying for the damage, is wrong.
      But it's so widely held that lots of people pay out and it starts to become true.

      If its a leak from radiator and went though 2 flats and is visable im sure you will have noticed, you would have had to top boiler up and bleed radiators. Hes trying it on already said hasn't got insurance so hes blaming you

      Thanks very much, I'm going round to have a look this evening, and I'll be calling a plumber tomorrow and speaking to the insurance company once I've spoken to the plumber

      the flat below and is already talking about who pays and the flat below them is talking about liability already....

      There's no default liability for a leak.
      Leaks happen, and unless there's been either negligence or a deliberate act to cause the leak, the question of liability doesn't arise.
      And as there isn't really anything anyone can do to "maintain" pipework, negligence is a bit of a stretch....

      You can get a leak from a bedroom if the bedroom has a radiator. I have experience of a leaking central heating pipe under floorboards causing damage to a room below. It was a real pain to find as at first it appeared to be penetrating damp. You can also get leaks running a fair way under floorboards...

      Airbnb not a problem but as the tenant want to arrange it, it falls under the "sub-letting" category which makes most insurers run a mile. Think you will have trouble getting the cover you need, coupled with other potential issues as per above post, I think this is more hassle than it's w...

      I would just relay everything in your post to your landlord insurer. I do not know the extent of coverage on your insurance policy but things that will help are:

      "Trace and Access" cover which would cover the locating and repairing of the leak
      "Property Owners Liability"...
