645. General principles with regard to insurance.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 provides that, in certain circumstances, a tenant1 has the right:

  1.  

    (1)     to request a summary of insurance cover2;

  2.  

    (2)     to request to inspect the insurance policy3;

  3.  

    (3)     to notify insurers of possible claims4; and

  4.  

    (4)     to challenge a landlord's choice of insurers5.

The rights conferred under heads (1) to (4) above6 apply in relation to Crown land7, as in relation to other land8; but they do not apply to a tenant of a local authority9, of a National Park authority10, or of a new town corporation
