    Claim on rental flat affecting my home insurance

    It’s time to renew my home insurance and I have found that when I try to shop around, other insurers won’t take me on/ hike up the premiums because I have had a claim this year for my student flat due to water damage there. Has anyone else found the same? Do I just have to suck it up and pay higher premiums on my home insurance?

    Regrettably such matters go hand in hand with Insurance Renewals. Any claim or reported matter which might subsequently result in a claim has to be declared even if it relates to another property. I would suggest speaking with a specialist insurance broker like those which have banners on this web site, you might get a more responsive quote.

      Just an epilogue: the insurance company agent said they’d check with their underwriter, then came back to me to say they’d be happy to insure me without increased premiums. I now pay £300 less pa due to switching and have enhanced insurance on our high value bikes. It pays to shop around and switch!
