Reporting parquet damage to insurance

Hello,

I am moving out of my house soon. My landlord came to take the keys and she saw that the parquet has been damaged. I explained to her that the damage is normal because we have been living here for a long time. Anyway, she did not accept and instead asked me to file a report to my insurance about it. She said the insurance would cover it.

Does anyone have any experience? Do personal liability and household insurance cover the damage to the parquet that is caused by the furniture for a long time? Or should I just say it happened yesterday when I was moving them out? :-D

Thanks.

Contact your insurance and ask them. They may just pay out without checking or they may send someone to inspect it themselves.

They will be well used to these kinds of claims and will know if the landlord is trying to get a free floor.

Have you got a copy of your incoming report also?

I'm still waiting for the form to fill, but don't know what to write there...

Damaged parquet liability

Hello,

I moved to my apartment 4 years ago and took the rental contract from another tenant who had lived there since 2011. The agency did not check the house, and I did not sign anything. I just took over the house with all the damages.

Now, that I am going to leave the apartment, the agency is asking me to pay for the damaged parquet. The parquet is very old and most of the damage is due to furniture or its age. It's been there at least since 2011 when the other tenant had moved there.

Why should I pay for something that is old? It's part of the house and of course, the furniture will cause some damage to the floor is there for 8 years!

Does anyone know anything that could help me with this issue?

Thanks

Re: Damaged parquet liability

Eight years is not old.

What kind of parquet is it?

It's supposed to be replaced after 40 years. Not earlier ;-)
