WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to help your landlord-clients protect themselves via insurance policies and/or recover costs when a tenant causes damage to a short-term rental property or unit.
With new apps like Airbnb making renting easier than ever, short-term rentals have become increasingly popular among homeowners – and the increased demand has created numerous legal questions. For example, what is the distinction between a short-term and long-term rental? Is a license, permit, or certificate necessary? What are the key provisions to include in the rental agreement?
Under Tennessee law (Tenn. Code Ann. §66-28-401) tenants may not deliberately or negligently destroy, deface, damage, impair or remove any part of a rental unit or permit any person to do so. What safeguards can landlords put in place to protect themselves and their investments? What is the legal recourse for a landlord when a short-term occupant causes damage and fails to—or refuses to—pay for it?
Join us on August 8, 2018, when Michael Wrenn will discuss landlord-tenant laws in Tennessee and, specifically, landlord rights and remedies for recouping costs due to renter or tenant damage. You will learn about:
- The Airbnb/VRBO "Host Guarantee"
- Renters Insurance
- Reviewing Business Policies
- The Homeowner's Insurance Policy
- The Landlord or Rental Dwelling Policy
