Tenant not maintaining insurance

1 Reply

I have a tenant with 2 italian mastiffs.  I only allowed the dogs if he would maintain renter's insurance with a $500,000 liability attachment.  His insurance was cancelled over a week ago and I cannot get him to respond to my request for proof that it has been reinstated.  Anyone know what right I have with this?  He is on a month to month.  TIA

If the insurance requirement is part of your written lease then send notice of lease violation. Check your local laws around how to do this (timing, location, mode of delivery, etc) 

if the insurance requirement is not part of your lease you can create an addendum and see if they will sign
