Tree fell on tenant's car

7 Replies

Hello, I have a situation I'm hoping some people might be able to help with. A few days ago, a storm knocked down part of tree on my property and caused some minor damage to the tenant's car. Is this an issue I should look into with my landlord insurance policy, or would the tenant call their renter's insurance and/or car insurance? Thank you for your help.

This is a them issue and their insurance should handle it all.  

     The only way it would be an issue for you was if the tree was rotten and you were aware of it and you refused to take care of the issue. But it doesn’t sound like it was that.
