I am moving from Sydney to Melbourne with my wife. We have been approved for a rental property in Melbourne west but the agreement we have been given has a few clauses related to landlord's insurance. Just wanted to check with people in other states that is this normal?. I am pasting some of the conditons below. Please let me know if you guys think this is normal. The house we are moving to is fairly new so i understand from Landlord perspective that they want to be covered. i have asked further details of point 1; 'where it says Tenant will not allow anything to be done which would invalidate the policy'. I dont know what anything means here and what would break his policy so ask clarification of that point and also to change 0 children in point 7 to one child atleast. lol
The TENANT shall not allow anything to be done which would invalidate any insurance policy on the premises or
increase the premium and the TENANT shall pay to the LANDLORD all increased premiums and all other expenses
incurred as a consequence of any branch of this term.
The TENANT agrees to pay the LANDLORD for any excess amount charged or any additional premium charged by the
LANDLORD’S insurance company as a result of accidental breakage of glass, toilet bowls and wash basins in the
premises where the damage has been caused by the TENANT or by anyone on the premises with the consent of the
The TENANT agrees that the premises will be the place of residence for 2 adults and 0 children only.
