Home insurance - Who should I buy from?
Found 23rd Mar
We applied for a mortgage as first time buyers and the broker we used explained how we needed home insurance in place, this is new to me and not sure which company to use and who is reliable for payouts. We felt like our broker is getting commission from Aviva as he was pushing hard to sell us the Aviva one, home and contents cover. He was adamant we needed the insurance right now so I told him we wanted to look round as we felt this was being forced on us and we didn’t have a choice. We don’t exchange contracts for 2-3 months with the seller. If Aviva is the best we will go back and get it but just wanted some opinions from others as he said other companies hardly pay up. Any advice appreciated, thanks.
