High winds caused a window to blow out in a flat rented by

Resolved Question:

High winds caused a window to blow out in a flat rented by my daughter and landlady says she is responsible in replacing it. Window was off the latch but not open. I say it should be covered by building insurance. Who is right?

Thank you for your question.

The landlady is responsible for replacing the window as the she is responsible for keeping the property wind and watertight. Your daughter wasn't negligent in any way. If the landlady has insurance, the insurance will cover the incident.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
