2009 only a few tenants are properly insured in the UK
5th February 2009
is now a huge rental market in the UK, many people renting
cannot get a mortgage or don't want to buy in case they lose
their jobs, so they rent, unfortunately only a small percentage
take out insurance.
the growth of the UK's rental market, it is unfortunate that
so many tenants are not insuring their possessions.
tenants are at risk from theft and damage to their possessions,
as well as their landlord's contents and something as simple
as a spilt glass of wine could mean the loss of their deposit.
From a spilt glass of wine to an iron mark on the carpet,
accidents can happen whether you are renting or not. However
if you happen to be living in rented property, a tenant might
not realize that the landlord can take out the cost of repairs
for these accidents from the deposit..
tenants are usually advised by the letting agents and get
information from the Internet, they still don't realise that
the landlord's insurance won't cover them if they accidentally
damage the rental property and it certainly won't cover them
if their own belongings are stolen.
Nationally in the UK that only ten per cent of tenants have
appropriate insurance in place, meaning that ninety per cent
don't have adequate insurance to cover their contents.
often neglect to buy contents insurance, many simply don't
know that it's available or in some instances they assume
that they're protected by their landlords insurance, which
isn't the case.
typical Tenant's contents insurance policy will offer cover
damage to their landlord's property - for example if the
carpet is ruined with red wine or coffee. They won't be
risking their deposit.
Audio and electrical equipment, credit cards, money, bikes
and frozen food.
Items in the garden and outbuildings and even iPods, handbags
when they are away from home.
Theft by forcible means, collision by aircraft, vehicles
of the problem why tenants don't take out insurance is because
they think that because they are renting, they haven't got
many possessions. Even if they rent in a furnished property,
whereby the landlord's insurance will cover the landlord's
furniture, they forget the other small items they have.
often include a new TV, a laptop computer, games console,
an ipod or cd player clothes, food in the freezer and that
is very easy to buy insurance and property insurance sites
