Greetings all,


I have a buildings/contents policy with Lloyds. In Jan bad weather blew the TV arial down, damaged roof etc. Works cost £385 plus VAT.


I claimed.


They refused payout - as they had consulted their "weather reports" & deemed it not severe enough to pay out!


Needless to say one can ask the Q "what is the point of insurance"


I have called them, they refuse to debate it, I am writing a letter of complaint, will give them 2 weeks to payout otherwise its the County Court for me. I have paid the builders for the repair now.


if anyone can advise as to any recourse quoting any relevant legislation SI's or case law that would be great.

Before you go to court on this one it'll be quicker doing it this way.


Firstly, ask the builder to confirm in writing what the cause of damage was, and the pre loss condition of the aerial. If he confirms storm damage then it is set in stone that you will be covered.


Insurance companies use systems like Geoproof to ascertain the ave wind speed / gusts of postcodes. The FSA have told insurance companies not to use this computer as the sole reason for denying the claim. Once you get the report from the builder send it to the Ins Co and they should reverse the decision.

Abbey - owed £3260 - Paid up.


Barclays owed £2500 - Paid up.


Halifax, Mint & Egg - next on the hit list


Dont click on the scales - I'm quite proud of my little red dot! - As the little red dot has gone - click away!!!!
