The issue of costs that are the responsibility of the tenant?

I have just completed this government consultation/survey. At least I have had my (for the record) say in this matter. I suggest all landlord members of this forum who are as angry as I am about the abolition of s.21 do the same - before private landlords become an extinct species. https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/a-new-deal-for-renting-resetting-the-balance-of-rights-and-responsibilities-between-landlords-and-tenants...

Accidental damage to the landlord’s non-permanent fixtures and fittings (like carpets and curtains)
£5,000 cover level
Policy underwritten by UK General Insurance Ltd. (end)
Perhaps this insurance cover goes some way in covering some of the issues mentioned? It is the tenants own insurance, and not the landlords. Landlords could require the tenant takes out this policy under the terms of their tenancy.... Read More
