Cancellation

by Vicky
(Creston, BC Canada)

After a year,I decided not to renew my house insurance when it came up to be renewed. I just didn't go in and renew it. I was not told that I needed to sign it off when I took it out. I kept receiving bills, so I called in and told them I was not going to renew it, and was then informed that I needed to sign off which I did. This was 3 months past the renewal date. I have now received a bill stating that I owe a third of the yearly payment, even though if I had needed to cash in on the insurance because of fire, etc. I would have received nothing because my insurance was not paid up.

Hi Vicky,

Until your policy is officially canceled (i.e. you get a notice saying it is canceled or you sign something), a claim will likely be paid.

Insurers should not take a verbal cancellation. It is too easy to deny that you canceled.

That's why you are being billed.
