Will the wine stain ever come out of the sofa? How do chair legs break so easily? Who’s idea was it to put carpet in the bathroom anyway? We’ve all been there and this is where Tenants’ Liability Insurance comes in.
It can help protect your deposit if you accidentally damage your landlord’s fixtures, fittings or furniture. This can range from things as small as a stain on the carpet, or a broken lamp, to more serious operations like burst pipes.
Tenants’ Liability Insurance is not a replacement for your security deposit, it’s designed to reduce the risk that you lose it. It pays out for some of the most common reasons a landlord might keep your money at the end of your tenancy. It’s worth noting that you shouldn’t leave it until you move out to make a claim, most insurance providers give a maximum of 30 days after the incident for you to make one. At Urban Jungle, we include Tenants’ Liability in our standard Contents insurance
at no extra cost from just £5 per month.
