Press Release (ePRNews.com) - GUILDFORD, England - May 20, 2016 - It is a little known fact that having a criminal conviction is likely to invalidate most mainstream home insurance policies, this not only applies to a homeowner with a criminal conviction but also if anyone living at the residence has a criminal conviction as well.
Sadly many people find this out the hard way by having a claim declined by their insurer; meaning 100,000s of households are financially exposed and the support is not there when people need it the most.
Voyager Insurance Services Ltd. has just included a facility on its WEBroker online broker platform, giving access to its ‘Fresh Start’ product to nearly 1,000 brokers, enabling them to request dedicated quotes for any of their clients who may be seeking Home Insurance with an unspent criminal conviction, quickly and easily.
‘Fresh Start has been designed specifically for those with unspent criminal convictions who require Home Insurance. Unfortunately, for individuals with unspent criminal convictions, acquiring Home Insurance can be quite a lengthy task whereby clients often find themselves rejected by mainstream Insurers, meaning that the process is usually more difficult than it is for people without criminal convictions’ says Carl Carter, Director.
Carter went on to say, ‘The down side to this is some people risk not declaring their convictions or those of people living with them, meaning an application for Home Insurance is successful but invalid. They only find out the hard way when they make a claim that gets rejected. Our Fresh Start Home Insurance facility is very flexible and we can consider all convictions – even fraud and arson. It is often regarded as the leading brand in this sector and has been providing Home Insurance for those with criminal convictions for 15 years.’
Carter continues, ‘By filling this gap in the market for customers with unspent criminal convictions we are helping brokers to provide a valuable niche product which will allow them to better meet their own client’s needs.’
Recommended by BIBA, Unlock (E-Offenders Charity), NACRO, Probation Officers Service and HM Prison Service, Fresh Start has made a strong impact, providing a much needed service.
Insurance brokers and intermediaries interested in having an agency with Fresh Start should call the office on 01483 806 900 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
