Our tenant had an attempted burglary and the shop door needs to be replaced but has to be made to fit as it is not a standard size. We as the owners of the property will probably have to go through the insurance to cover this.
The contract is not very detailed, which is an error on my behalf, but it is what it is. As it stands, we pay the buildings insurance and the tenant does not contribute towards this. The tenant paid £250 at the time for the Police to secure the property, so he is looking to get this back and looking to us to pay this.
Surely we are not liable to pay for this?
If the culprit is charged, shouldn’t the tenant be looking to seek this from him?
If I negotiate a new contract at a later date with the tenant and ask him to pay towards the insurance, how does it stand in the event of a similar issue in the future?
Does the excess (In the event of a claim) need to be paid by the tenant or the Landlord?
