It’s an unavoidable reality that tenants cause damage to their rental properties. That can range from acceptable levels of wear and tear, right through to an unthinkable catastrophe that destroys the house. As a tenant, it’s one thing to lose your bond, but unfortunately you may be liable for major damage, and the excess can be unbelievably expensive.
For example, if you leave the iron on causing a fire, the responsibility to repair all the damage may fall entirely on you. Do you want to be legally obliged to pay for fixing someone else’s assets? It’s a real shame to see renters find themselves completely stuck in situations that change the whole trajectory of their lives, when it can be so easily avoided with renters insurance.
