      if you as landlord own the property, i would think its obvious that you need to insure it , not only against fire but also public liability, why would your tenant want to pay the insurance, if it burns down they can move to a different property.
      Opinions given are mine, They are not necessarily correct, as the more I learn the less I know, You should always seek professional help.

          well this is a different question, you could do this, but how would you know the value of your tenants goods.why would you want to get involved.

            I see from your previous posts that you have many issues which are indicative of someone new to the industry. I do not think it is helpful to you to learn about the property industry by asking a series of disjointed questions. Have you considered buying any books (both commercial and residential I suppose in your case)?

            To give you an answer to this question you need to factor into the rent: use of a property, mortgage, insurance, maintenance, furnishings, gas safety check, agents' fees at the very least and somewhere at the end a bit of profit if things go well. If you get a bad set of tenants add unpaid rent, damage, legal fees, balding hair.
