Hi, my name is Annie and I am new to the forum
I just wondered if anyone has encountered problems whilst trying to obtain house/contents insurance. I realised that last year my insurance was actually invalid as my conviction was not spent. Now I am trying to find insurance and am finding myself being treated like an outcaset for having a criminal record. The companies who do offer cover then interrogate and want to know every little detail or your conviction. I think it is appalling and humiliating. I mean what extra risk do they think ex offenders pose? Are we all budding pyromaniacs / unhinged lunatics?! I did manage to find one company who were prepared to insure me and then refused because my park home was more than 15 years old. Jeez, give me a break! I would be interested to know if anyone has managed to find an insurer who will provide cover for a park home for an ex offender......
