    Damage by plumber -Who's liable?

    Hello,

    A plumber employed by myself (the landlord) has accidentally damaged one of the tenant's posessions during the course of his work at the property. Who is liable for this legally speaking -the plumber or me? I've searched this forum but haven't managed to find an answer to this.

    Thankyou.

    The plumber was employed by you, thus the tenant is entitled to claim from you and you must do likewise from your plumber.

    P.P.
    Any information given in this post is based on my personal experience as a landlord, what I have learned from this and other boards and elsewhere. It is not to be relied on. Definitive advice is only available from a Solicitor or other appropriately qualified person.

        the plumber would need and should have tradesman insurance to cover things such as this,
        Opinions given are mine, They are not necessarily correct, as the more I learn the less I know, You should always seek professional help.
