Legal Q&A: During windstorm, tree fell on tenant’s car


Question: Several weeks ago, during a windstorm, a large tree fell on my tenant’s car. The tenant thinks I am responsible for the damages, but my insurance company says I am not.

Answer: Unless you were negligent in the way you maintained the tree, you are not liable.

Question: I am renting a single-family dwelling to three individuals, each of whom submitted a separate application but want to all be listed on the rental agreement. How do I fill out a month-to-month agreement?
