Have French Law Questions? Ask an French Lawyer Now.
Thank you for the reply.
I suspect the CMB branch manager knows full well that his assistant somewhat "messed up" while about to go on maternity leave ..and so is on damage limitation. There is not a huge amount of money involved, but on principle I dislike being given the "run-around". I will do as you suggest and write to the Bank with AR.
In the meantime, can you tell me if it is indeed the case that according to the CMB Manager, speaking to me today, it is perfectly allowable in French Law to have multiple insurance policies on the same property? If so, I find that quite astonishing, as it would surely lay the way open for potentially fraudulent claims ...
