Your Money: Homeless.. and in the dark over premiums; CASE STUDY.


JOHN and Wendy Vickerton, from Atwick, North Humberside, lost virtually everything last month when their bungalow was flooded with almost two feet of water.

John, 49, an agricultural contractor, and Wendy, who have a six-year-old daughter, Lucy, are now living in temporary accommodation paid for by their insurers Cornhill Direct. They paid pounds 132 a year for pounds 400,000 buildings cover and pounds 49.16 for pounds 50,000 contents. Cornhill haven't yet been able to tell them how much future premiums will cost. John says: "We would have faced serious problems without cover, although we are still very worried about the impact the flooding will have on the value of our property."
