    Default Tenants using 'spa room' as bedoom

    If a property has an extension which is classified on the LIM as a 'spa room' and the tenants are using it as a bedroom what are the potential issues? i.e would this have a bearing on insurance? can anyone see an issue here?

    There is the possibility of drowning if they roll out of the bed...

    If there's no spa, then it ain't a spa room.

    I can't see a problem with this so long as the tenants have a sign by the water bed stating a "No unsupervised children under 9yrs old, maximum number of people allowed at any given time and No running allowed".

    Seriously though, write your insurer a letter (or email) and specify all the details. I say this in lieu of making a phone call so that you have their stance in writing to avoid the possibility having a "he said, she said" arguement in the future.

    Getting wet is the main one.

    But the benefit is avoiding that early morning struggle to make your way to the shower, hate that.
