by Emma Allen
One thing that we have noticed these past few months is that the pandemic has affected us all in different ways. The rise of domestic violence, especially during lock-down, is a serious issue that can also be quite confronting. We can’t deny that there’s a great social element to this where we can only respond with empathy. Though landlords need to be aware of the changes to the the ‘Domestic Violence’ tenancy laws which could impact their investment.
EBM Insurance have released a detailed article on Domestic Violence tenancy laws. Whilst only a small handful of landlords may have to contend with the issue, it’s very clear that you must have your insurances in place to deal with the financial burden. Please take the time to check your insurance, or make adjustments so that you are covered. Click here for the full article.
