What is tenancy liability insurance?

Tenancy Liability Insurance provides cover for your landlord’s belongings that you’re responsible for under your tenancy agreement in the event that you accidentally damage them.

Here at Rentshield, we understand that even for the most careful tenants, accidents can happen, so taking out tenancy liability insurance can leave your security deposit intact in case something happens, like you spill a glass of red wine on a cream carpet, burn a worktop with a hot pan or your washing machine breaks and causes water damage.

We work in partnership with HomeLet to provide tenancy liability insurance.

What sort of things are covered by tenancy liability insurance?

Just a few examples of things that are covered by HomeLet’s liability insurance are:

  • Damage to windows, doors, mirrors and furniture
  • Damage to kitchen appliances such as the hob or oven
  • Damage to worktops and flooring
  • Water damage from appliances such as your washing machine or dishwasher
  • Fire damage as a result of a candle being left unattended

It’s important to note that these items are covered for accidental damage. Malicious damage or theft caused by you or a guest of yours will not be covered.
