If I accidentally cause damage to the property will I still be charged for the repair costs?

Who is responsible for damage caused by tenant accidents.

Short Answer

Tenants

Long Answer

While in possession of the property tenants will be held responsible for interior and exterior damage caused to the property. This is true if the damage is intentional or accidental. Proper care and supervision of children and guests can also reduce the risk of accidents occurring. Regular maintenance and care to eliminate excessive wear and tear will minimize the cost of repairs required to bring the property back in to optimum conditions when you decide to move out.

Tip:

We require tenants maintain renters insurance while they reside at the property. Many renters insurance policies cover accidents caused by tenants and their guests. Learn more about renters insurance here.
