  1. Thank you. Your information is helpful and I will contact towergate. I will am also following up the data issue and have had to pay £10 for the privillege of finding out what information they hold on me and when they received it. I will let you know the outcomes X
  2. Hi thanks for this Insurance companies are only regulated "at the point of sale" by the FSA. So in a nutshell they regulate if you have been mis-sold. They cannot regulate the contents of a policy. The FOS do not regulate they just make sure that financial services follow the rules (not sure which ones) The only two regluatory bodies are the FSA and the Office of fair trading OFT.

  6. I had been insured for contents and buildings for 15 years with no claims... things happen but you never bother as you end u paying more you save it for the "big things". I had a "big thing" the floor of my kitchen was sinking. The insurance company did not cover it as it was concrete and showed no signs of damage to the outside walls. I was gutted, being a single parent and a childminder this was a worry. I managed by begging and borrowing to get it fixed. I then decided to get a new insurer but whilst the building was going on the old policy was cancelled. I forgot to get a new
