Financial problems insurance
Buying home insurance when you have a poor financial history
If you have a poor credit history, have been or are currently declared bankrupt, or have a County Court Judgement (CCJ) or Individual Voluntary Arrangement (IVA) to deal with your debts, you may have difficulty in buying home insurance.
Unlike many insurance companies, we can usually provide you with an online home insurance quote in these situations, quickly and easily. You don’t even need to talk to us unless you really want to!
Save money and avoid a credit check by paying annually
When you buy your policy, we offer two payment options allowing you to choose whether you pay a single amount up front or monthly instalments. The monthly payment option has a transaction fee and it requires you to have a credit score check undertaken by the credit provider. So, if you’ve already had financial issues to contend with, the easiest and least stressful payment method is to pay your annual premium in one go with a payment card.
Disclosure is important
It might be tempting not to tell your insurer about bankruptcy, a CCJ or an IVA in the past, but be aware that if you omit to disclose any of these and you need to make a claim at some point, the insurer will find out about your financial history because it’s available in public records and will most likely refuse the claim and cancel your policy immediately. Being honest about your situation is the only way to be sure you have the protection you need.
