The results of a snap survey by Simple Landlords Insurance has revealed that large numbers of landlords are more likely to send Christmas cards than safety advice.
Some landlords are set to go further with planned gifts including chocolates or sweets, wine and even presents for tenants’ children. However, a generous 2% are really planning to get into the festive spirit saying that they would give money off rent for the Christmas holiday.
Of those that said they would not do anything (54%), the vast majority (80%) said they did not think it was appropriate to send a card or give a gift as being a landlord is a business, whilst just over one in ten cited worries that their tenants may be offended on religious or personal grounds.
A minority of landlords were also conscious of the additional risks posed to property and possessions over December.
