Tenant’s rental liability (pl. OC Najemcy) is a civil liability for damages caused to third parties by the Tenant of the premises.
Simply put, it is an insurance which protects when a Tenant of a rented apartment destroys or damages property of a third party, e.g. floods a neighbor’s apartment or damages the entrance gate to the building.

In our lease agreements, the Tenant is obliged to take out a private person’s life insurance policy for at least PLN 100,000 and to maintain the insurance for the indicated amount for the entire duration of the agreement. The scope of insurance covered by the policy must include the Tenant’s civil liability for damages to the rented property.

In the scope of Tenant’s liability insurance, TO BE RENT cooperates with Aviva.
