The simple answer, unfortunately, is yes. Rightly or wrongly, insurers and underwriters tend to view DSS, asylum seeker and student tenants as a greater risk. While professional, working people are perceived by insurers and underwriters to be more morally sound and therefore more likely to look after the property they are renting. Unfortunately, this perception that high risk tenants such as asylum seekers and students are less likely to treat a property with care makes them more of a fire risk, which has a highly detrimental effect on the cost of your Residential Let Insurance premium.
