It's usually called a "Floater Policy." When renting you should always get a damage deposit from the tenant and if they leave your suite in ruins at least your insurance will pay for it. You have the right to give 24 hours notice to your tenant (by letter) stating that you will be inspecting the suite. If you haven't prepared yourself with a "Floater Policy" or obtained a damage deposit from your tenant then I'm sorry to say the cost will be yours unless you go to small debts court and it may not be worth your time. Before renting again take a picture of the suite with the date on the picture (use a video camera if possible) get the damage deposit and do a 4 months inspection (giving 24 hours notice.)
