    Water escape insurance claim -insurance renwal quotes post claim

    Hi everyone!
    We had to make a claim on the building insurance for water escape on a policy which has now increased the next years policy...it now seems harder to get a broker to provide quotes. Some are just saying no which seems odd or are we more of a risk as we are now subletting more as well? Any good brokers out there to try. We have been with Aviva...All help appreciated. Thank you.

    This is a common problem I find. Why did you have to claim on the insurance? Often it is in the long term better to pay for a repair and repair damage yourself than claim.

        For all except the biggest of claims, insurers operate time machines. They pay your claim out of your future premiums.

          So say the claim was for over 50K and god forbid there was another claim where I just found out that the subletting tenants dont have contents insurance because I asked them..who pays then?

          • Damage to my property insurance claim
            retro
            The owner of the next door property has recently crashed his car into brick wall in front of my house. He demolished the whole of the front garden.
            I would like to get compensation from his insurance policy.
            Will my insurance premium go up if I proceed with the claim through my insurer who...

            What Ram said.

            I've come to the conclusion that home insurers would love you to claim with them for damage others have done... Think about it... they get full compensation from the insurers of the miscreant, but only pay you out (compensation-excess). Then for the next few years, they can...

            It is up to next door property to pay to fix the damage.

            Where he gets the money from to fix is immaterial.
            The cost for You to engage builders to rectify the damage comes from 3 sources.
            1) next door property pays your builders quote, in advance.
            2) His insurance liaises

          • Public liability on land adjoining a freehold property

            Mum is buying a bungalow built in somebody's back garden. There are 9 properties altogether and they are freehold.

            There is a resident's association and everyone pays into a public liability insurance for the unadopted tarmac access road.

            My question is this: Is it normal for...

            I don't think the council will ever adopt this private road. The road is private so the property owners aren't liable for the repairs as they would be if it was just unadpoted and not private. (I read the Highways Act).

            In the conveyance document dated 1977, so not that old, references...

            Councils won't adopt roads unless they service a significant community. In the current climate, that road is never going to be adopted.

            Even if it were important enough to adopt, it would have to be brought up to council standards before it was adopted.

            I think some councils are hard-up and have no budget to take on private roads.

            So these roads have to be maintained by the house owners on the estate.

            Thank you leaseholder64. There are some other issues however but I won't bore you with the details. Several small but important details need sorting. part of the problem is, I think, older people have bought properties on the estate and not questioned the issues I'm questioning so the info hasn't passed...

            I've got this sorted - nearly. I would delete the post but I can't so here's the situation so far - just 4 of the residents own the private unadopted area and everyone chips in for the public liability. The 4 owners are responsible for any shortfall should there be a claim or repairs....

            You should be concerned if you mother is not partially responsible for the upkeep of the road, and there is not a covenant to that effect noted on the title for the property.

            The land will have started off belonging to someone, although it may have reverted to the Crown. The Crown do not...
