Landlord Building & Content Insurance

Hi there, can anyone advise if building and content insurance is a legal requirement as I note the standard contract states I have insurance. I am renting a flat and the building insurance is not paid directly by me so I have no detailed information regarding it???
Thanks in advance.

Hi Jennifer, thanks for posting. I can see you’ve already had a reply this morning about this. Feel free to let us know if you’ve got any more questions there.

Thanks, Elinor
