Water damage to tenants property

0 Thanks

One of my tenants called me last week to inform me that there had been a water leak in the roof during the bad weather, and that the water had leaked on to his laptop. The laptop is now not functioning.
I made immediate emergency repairs, and had a roofer make full repairs within 2 working days.
I had not been informed of any leaks in the run-up to this problem.
The tenant does not have their own insurance.
My RentGuard insurance does not cover the tenants possessions.
I use the RLA AST.

Do I have any liability?

Kind regards
