failed to renew my home insurance with Axa thinking home insurance policies operated like car insurance and Axa are trying to charge me for the renewal premium. Do I have to pay them?XXXXX XXXXXier
Thanks for your question. Please remember to click ACCEPT once you get my answer.Could you please explain a little clearer?
I was insured or home and contents With Axa. I did not renew the policy since I thought that home insurances operated like car insurance where you do not have to accept the renewal quote and it lapses if you find a better quote elsewhere. As it happens I had a better quote from Churchill via confused.com, and went ahead with them.I never remember having to cancel home insurance policy in the past which is what they are saying I should have done. Hope this is clear nowXXXXX XXXXXier
So you are saying it was renewed and should not have been?
they are claiming that unless I cancelled the policy it would automatically be renewedSo they want me to pay the renewal premiumF.H.
I see.You need to check the terms and conditions of your old policy.If it says they auto-renew then you are stuck.This is because if it is in the terms then you are deemed to accept this.If it is NOT within the terms then there is NO WAY they can enforce it.Only in the terms can they rely on it.You need to check the detail of the policy. Please remember to click accept so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
