FAQ: AS A RENTER, WHO PAYS FOR WATER DAMAGES?
Renters often wonder, when faced with water damages, who will pick up the bill? At SERVPRO of NE Long Beach/Lakewood we are called out to cleanup and restore many water damaged properties where multiple parties are involved. We often have renters, homeowners, property managers, and HOAs on a single water damage repair. Each project is unique when it comes to water restoration for condos or homes. Renters are responsible for their belongings, except in rare cases where the landlord's policy covers rental belonging. If a renter has a rental insurance policy, the policy may cover damaged contents (furniture, clothing, personal items), temporary housing if needed, or cleaning your belongings. The homeowner is responsible for the structure of the property. HOAs may be responsible for some of the structural repairs, depending on how the association bylaws are written.
At SERVPRO of NE Long Beach/Lakewood we are willing and able to guide you through this process. We do water damage repairs every day, 24/7, so it is our pleasure to help you recover after a water emergency. Our team is trained to help you file a claim, provide all needed documentation, and also communicate with your landlord and property manager. Please call SERVPRO at 562-420-0030 and we will help you with the water damage repair at your condo, home, or business.
