I am another very unhappy tenant and it is an absolute lie that Happy Lets has 'absolutely no requirement for you to take (insurance) from a preferred insurer'. Prior to signing the contract they tell you you have to buy tenants liability insurance as it is 'a requirement for your tenancy agreement'. More specifically, they have their partners from Let Alliance contact you saying:"We recently completed your references ahead of your move into your new home and they have asked us to contact you ab ...

Hi Rob, We are very sorry to hear that you have had a poor experience with Happy Lets and have looked into these comments; many of which are being mentioned for the first time. With regards to the insurance, this is a very common request which benefits both the landlord & tenant and ensures everyone is as protected as possible. However, it is also a common request from tenants to forego this and if this is the case, we simply ask the landlord whether they are happy to proceed without this ...
