Fire damage

2 May 2017 | 2 comments

One of our tenants had a chip pan fire over the weekend compounding the damage by putting it in a sink full of cold water . There is superficial damage to the property but repairs will run into hundreds of pounds Before the landlord puts through a claim on his insurance he has asked if there is any comeback on the tenant for the damage caused as it was through their own actions .?

    This will be dependant on the terms of the tenancy but as a general rule, where the landlord is insured and covered for the situation, a claim should be made. Any excess would be recoverable from the tenant where it was their fault.

      As I thought but many thanks for confirming
