Why was my home insurance cancelled or refused by my insurer?
There are several reasons your home insurance could have been cancelled. For instance, if your circumstances have changed since you moved or you've recently made several claims. Other reasons include:
- Your house has current or previous subsidence issues, which is seen as a high risk to insurers. Don't worry, we offer subsidence insurance too.
- You live in a high flood risk area. Thankfully we also provide flood insurance!
- Disclosure issues: if you didn't let your insurer know about a particular aspect of your situation, this counts as non-disclosure. Examples of this include: not telling them about a previous claim, or not disclosing that you run a home-based business.
- The insurer has stopped insuring certain house types. This happens, and is often the result of a merger or acquisition, or simply because they've realised a policy they once insured is now too high-risk.
Will a refused or cancelled home insurance policy make it more difficult to get cover?
Yes, it's likely to make the process more difficult. Most insurance companies will ask if you've ever had a cancelled or refused policy when you ask them for a quote.
Even if you're tempted to deny this, we would advise against this as the truth could catch up with you. The Claims and Underwriting Exchange (CUE) is set up as a way for insurers and underwriters to share information about certain types of insurance. This helps them catch non-disclosure and fraudulent claims.
As a result, not voluntarily disclosing this information would probably be a more expensive mistake compared to the small bump in your home insurance premiums you'll face for a previous policy being refused or voided.
