It’s not just birds, bees and butterflies that come out in force in summer – unfortunately, burglars step up their activity, too.
With many people going away on holiday (leaving homes empty) and others opening their windows and doors when temperatures rise, burglary rates spike in summer.
So, how can tenants and landlords stay one step ahead of the crooks and avoid the financial and psychological cost of a break-in? The answer is to be vigilant and work together.
Tips for tenants
Tips for landlords
And if the worst happens
In the unfortunate event of a burglary, the tenant should call the police and then the landlord or letting agent.
The landlord should act swiftly to secure the property and repair any damage.
When dealing with the aftermath of a burglary, always refer to the contract you’ve signed.
Generally*, the landlord is responsible for repairing damage to the building, such as broken windows or doors, and replacing items included in the property agreement (unless it can be shown the tenant was negligent).
The tenant should claim for the loss of personal items on their insurance.
