My tenant set my house on fire. The police said I had to provide and pay for alternative accommodation. Because I have had this property for many years it had building insurance to cover any damage but did not provide alternative accommodation for the tenant. He volunteered to stay with a friend while repairs are being done. However I would like to know the legal position because I have a few other properties with just old buildings cover.when I have tried to look into it it seems to say your landlord may have insurance cover which doesn’t answer my query. Would the local authority accommodate someone homeless in this situation.
