What can I do if my landlord fails to insure the building?
You should firstly check the provisions of your lease to establish what the insurance provisions are. If your landlord fails...
A lease is a contract and so if you breach the terms of your lease, legal action could be taken against you. The court could order you to pay damages, legal costs and/or put right any breach if it is possible to do so. The ultimate sanction open to your landlord would be to seek forfeiture of your lease.
You may require the services of a solicitor. See the list of Leasehold Practitioners.
