Can anyone comment on what level of rise they're finding with House and Contents policies?
My renewal notice arrived yesterday and it's up 30% on last year.
I can only assume they are trying to recoup all that was paid out last year with floods and fires.
Really annoys me. If I've taken the trouble to live in an area that is at no risk from flood and minimally from fire, I don't think I should be subsidising people who insist on living beside a river that floods every summer.
I'll do the ring around checking other companies, of course, but would be grateful for any recommendations.
So far I've just done the Suncorp online quote thingie and they quote replacement cost for my present house to be more than twice what it actually is!!! Obviously there would be a premium to match: I didn't go so far as to look.
