The reply I had from LV was
"Dear Mr ***** thank you for contacting us regarding your home insurance.
Your policy is still valid regarding you having spent convictions in the past this would not change if you were to obtain a new quote.
If you had unspent convictions where you did not do any time for a conviction then we would decline cover.
As you have spent time then we approve this and are happy to cover.
If you have any questions please call us on*************
Managing director, LV = General insurance direct
Could be me but this seems somewhat ambiguous if it said served time ok but spent time?
