I just applied for Home Insurance with Hiscox, I was declined because I am a Landlord!

I made it clear it was for my home only, but it made no difference.

I did not realise even insurers held us in such contempt.

Has anyone else had this, why are we seen as such low life?

Shop around. Try other insurers. The important thing is that you get cover in place for your own protection and to comply with your obligations to lenders.

Insurance is about risk, which is why life insurance premiums for a Vicar would be a lot less then someone who works in Bomb Disposal.

Thanks for that - everyday is a school day I guess. 😉

Just seems to be a little at odds with the idea that insurers are not allowed to take gender into consideration when calculating premiums.
