We've got landlords covered for fire damage like this, whereas Welsh Gov's model hasn't

WalesOnline recently reported on another Cathays, Cardiff house that was badly damaged due to a fire started by a candle.

We know of many landlords and agents who are users of Welsh Government's model written statement (the previous term for a "tenancy agreement"), but a word of warning about it: it doesn't include any reference to damage caused by fire, meaning landlords could have a very hard time recovering costs, even if the fire originated from the occupier's negligence.

Conversely, our written statement explicitly addresses fire safety and potential damage, providing landlords with greater protection and peace of mind.

We sent out a fire safety reminder occupants in our managed properties last month, which followed a similar fire in the area. We included within it the the exact terms that protect our clients. If you'd like to learn more and get some free guidance on this, feel free to get in touch.

We pride ourselves on offering the most robust contract you can find in Wales. If you aren't currently a managed client of ours and you'd like to learn more how our contract can benefit you, please get in touch with our team on 02920 668585.
