For your information, we made you aware of the requirement to purchase tenants’ liability insurance at almost every stage of the application process. When you “Made an Offer” you had to check the box to confirm that you understood that it was a requirement and it is detailed as a specific term of your tenancy agreement (please read your tenancy agreement for the specific details).
If your religion does not allow you to hold insurance then an exception to this can be made in special circumstances. Please reply to our request for your proof of tenants' liability insurance stating that your religious beliefs do not allow you to purchase insurance.
