Just wondering whether past or current or even future students that lived or will be living in a house next year decided to get home insurance that covers anything like theft, damage such as broken windows or broken locks, maybe things that will cause you illness (on my friends got ill because there was a gas leak and the landlord said they'd fix it but didn't and she had to go hospital to find out what was wrong with her. It appeared she had some of the gas leakage in her bloodstream).
Is it a good idea to get some kind of house insurance in case anything goes wrong or because it's a student house, are landlords liable for anything that happens that's beyond students' control?
What are people's experience with getting home insurance and is there any students that wished they got it in hindsight?
