Good Morning

I am nit sure what you are asking?

If the car is written off then you should be paid the net amount.

If you still have time left on the policy you can cancel it and they have to refund you the balance till the end of the insurance period.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
