There was a tree limb that falls on a guest's car. The tenant is asking me to pay for the damages to the car. What action I should take?

Check with your insurance and see if they cover it.

If the tree was in good condition with no signs of disease, this was an act of God and their auto insurance should cover it.  Tell them so and contact no one.  Remember, if you contact your insurance agent, it goes on your CLUE report, whether or not a claim is ever filed.  If the tree was diseased, dead, or you knew of some reason why the tree may pose a hazard, then you are at fault and you should contact your insurance company.
