Damage caused during a burglary: what should the tenant do?

Verified 17 February 2020 - Directorate for Legal and Administrative Information (Prime Minister)

The tenant is responsible for damage to the dwelling during the term of the lease.

However, if the damage was caused by a burglar, the repairs are not his responsibility. The tenant must contact your insurer.. The insurer will indicate to the tenant the steps to be taken, which vary depending on the type of insurance contract the tenant has taken.
