    All the people saying "get home insurance"... surely it's the landlord's responsibility to insure their house, no?

    Nobody is going to rent out an uninsured home.
    Not quite. They should / will pay buildings insurance (if it falls down etc). but you will be expected to pay contents insurance which will cover things such as replacing the worktops in case of fire.

    It's onlyh the drunken holes in the wall you would have to pay for

    an approved landlord will have buildings insurance and contents insurance for the fixtures and fittings in the contract, the rest of the contents the tenants have to insure.


    the other options of course are remain in uni accomodation or lodge rather than house share

    a three hour each way commute will not be sustainable leaving the house at 5 am and returning potentially as late 10 pm if not later ...
