Hi, After a flooded kitchen, it was needed to be redone and insurance helped. They also agreed on an amount for disturbance daily payment instead of alternate accommodation for tenants.
My questions are: Can the part of the disturbance allowance be used to update the kitchen to a better standard than insurance would otherwise pay? i.e new kitchen units rather than fitting the same old units only as they won’t pay for new ones.
If the landlord uses the money to update as above, is that insurance fraud?
Is there any legislation in UK that the landlord must pass on the full disturbance allowance to tenants following insurance claim?
