In theory the people which you or your landlord hire are insured for any damages that occur while working. But that still doesn't make us feel any better about strangers being in our home when we aren't there to keep an eye on things. Although everything in our loft is covered under our own insurance, that doesn't mean we want to replace it. On the same note, it doesn't mean we aren't trusting, it just feels weird to us.
