    Tenants gf using HMO address for life insurance

    I have a Romanian tenant in a hmo. His Romanian gf has taken out some life insurance using the address . She doesn't live there - she lives in Romania. What are the implications?

    Can't see which country making a difference but strongly suspect someone on the fiddle.

    If someone informed the insurance company they might investigate. I'd return mail, not known at this address

      Sounds like a fiddle to me. The letter got caught in the letterbox and ripped open. I facebooked the person and that's how I found out she's the Ts gf. I phoned the insurance company to tell them I'd never heard of her and she'd never lived there, well not in the last 25 years anyway and she's only 21 so that means she's never lived there.

          I'm not sure I necessarily see a problem.

          Romania is part of the EU.
          EU citizens can shop around and take out insurance in any member state.
          https://europa.eu/youreurope/citizen...s/index_en.htm

          And of course anyone can use an address for post that is not their home, it's often particularly expedient for correspondance in another country.

          Many LLs use a contact address for tenants that is not their home, mine does. (But I do also know his home address).

          It's up to the insurance company terms if they will issue life insurance for a person resident in another country.
          As long as they know she lives in Romania then it's not a problem.

            Thanks Nukecad, my concern is that she is not and never has been a tenant of mine. She lives in Romania but came over here and stayed with the T (without my consent) and got life insurance using my address. I wonder why she didn't get some in Romania as that's her home and she's back there now as far as I know. I just don't understand why somebody would come over here and get life insurance at an address they have nothing to do with and then go back home. It's one of those insurances where if you lose an eye you get so much, a leg so much and if you die a bit more and she's set it up for a long time - until she's 70. I smell a rat but just can't see it.

              Artful - that's what I suspect. If she gets enough legit stuff sent to my address she might be able to convince DWP she lives here when she doesn't.

                If the company is the freeholder called the principal and the directors called its agents. Could an insurance broker be called an agent of the company also and would the insurance broker owe fiduciary duties to the company?

                Those seeking renewals of buildings policies will find that insurers are taking a much tougher line especially where there have been chunky losses and premia are rising dramatically

                A broker put it to me this way. In 2020 insurers have made negative income on its investments therefore...

                desamax,

                More likely there was a big claim and the renewal went up so the only way to get reasonable cover was to accept a high excess.
                You can ask for claims history but I doubt they would tell you it had been declined, they don't normally decline renewals,. Just put price up so...

                I think the present insurers are perfectly reputable. I cant see that there is a way of ascertaining that the previous insurer declined. Companies are fickle and they do from time to time exit specific types of cover....

                Our excess have been increased, the 'escape of water' one is now 5K from £250 all others have doubled. This is a mixed use property all sold off on long leases. we have a feeling our landlord has had the insurance declined by the long standing insurer and we now have some unknown underwriter, the policy...

                Hi All

                I have a leasehold holiday home (flat).

                The lease states: . . . "the lessor will at all times during said term (unless such insurance shall be vitiated by any act or default of the Lessee) insure and keep insured the building including all common areas and common...

                yes but . . . the lease says

                "The lessor will at all times during said term (unless such insurance shall be vitiated by any act or default of the Lessee) insure and keep insured the building including all common areas and common services against fire and such other risks (if any) as...

                Hi ATC, I seem to misunderstand your point previously. My solicitor has written to the freeholder, but he does not accept our position. His reply is shown as below:

                "Insurance companies are unable to cover the structure of the building and common parts of the building without taking...

                The dispute has happened since the change of freehold.

                I was told by my conveyancing solicitor that building insurance is arranged by the Landlord for the common parts only and I must insure the flat myself. My lender also informed building insurance I must take out to hold as a condition...

                I think your best bet is to notify the insurers directly that it is occasionally vacant for longer periods . (As long as your lease has no clause against it) otherwise you may be liable as you say.
                Failing that make sure it's occupied at least once a month.
