Recently, the boyfriend of my tenant set fire to the property. The smoke damage is substantial, though actual fire damage is minimal: however, I estimate that the property will be uninhabital for approx 2 months.
My insurance policy will cover me for lost rental income, though they have suggested that the tenant should continue to pay rent even though she can't live in the property at the moment, as this is not excluded in the agreement (the template i used was the 'Assured shorthold tenanacy agreement', downloaded from the RLA website. Can you please advise the best course of action.
Thanks.
