Broken Windows. One of the problems which arises in rented properties is whose responsibility is it to repair and pay for broken windows. If the landlord has this kind of damage covered under the property insurance policy, the question of responsibility should not arise. However, greater clarification is required if the damage is not insured. There might be a clause in your tenancy agreement saying something like ‘The tenant shall replace all broken glass in doors and windows damaged during the tenancy where the damage has been caused by the tenant, a member of his family or their guests’, which deals with damage caused by the tenant. If the damage is nothing to do with the behaviour of the tenants, then the landlord should bear the cost. Proving who was responsible could be difficult. In the main, however, it can be distinguished from which side a pane of glass is broken, which could be useful to know if the glass is external.
