Hi,

Just moved to Sweden and wondering if there is a plain liability insurance. I am living with my friend who is the landlord of the place and I do not need a home insurance. However, it seems like in Sweden liability insurance is only part of home insurances. Is there any plain liability insurance?

Thanks for help

Alex

Are you sure that you are covered by your friend's home contents insurance?

Your landlord should add you to his home insurance - which he may need to specifically do - then you'll be covered (I think) by his liability insurance (and also theft etc).

If your landlord can't/won't do that, then you need home insurance as a tenant (if you have some kind of actually legal contract...) in any case, to protect your valuables from theft etc. And that policy would include liability insurance.

Ring around the big providers (IF, Trygg Hansa, Folksam etc) and ask.
