All tenants must purchase tenant insurance as Winpark Dorchester Properties is not responsible for any damages to tenants’ belongings, unless the damage was caused by Winpark Dorchester’s negligence. For example, if the tenant living above you has a flood and the water from the flood enters your suite, any damage to your personal belongings would not be Winpark Dorchester's responsibility.
