Disgrace.

Disgrace. Basically accused of lying to save them £100. Because I was not in the room when the damage occurred they referred to this as an inconsistency rather than simply honest. Liars and cheats. Took 3 months to refuse to pay so paid £50 in premiums whilst waiting. AVOID. Reviewed on: 10th January 2024

Horrific! A leak that started the size of a coin is now over 4 ft in diameter! They've sent 3 plumbers who have all made the situation worse. It's a living hell! Reviewed on: 26th December 2023

Do not bother

We recently started a bathroom renovation. Upon the bathroom being ripped out our builder discovered that 5 joists under the floor boards had rotted from water damage. This was unbeknownst to us as there hasn’t been any indication of a leak. I contacted Hastings to explain and they at first were great and quick to sort out alternative accommodation for us due to having no access to toilet facilities. 4 days later a surveyor came, the claim was declined and we have been left not knowing which way to turn to make our house structurally safe again. And given about 18 hours notice to check out of the hotel we had been put up in. The claim was declined as the joist damage was put down as previous damage to before our policy was taken out as the surveyor said their must have been a long term escape of water from somewhere to cause the level of damage. He then also put it down to failed sealant around the bath which is an exclusion on the policy even though the bathroom is a complete shell back to brick so he was clearly just making a guess! If we wouldn’t have started the bathroom renovation we would have been none the wiser to this damage until a serious accident happened and the bath fell through the kitchen ceiling. How can a claim not be valid when there is no evidence of any escape of water that we could have fixed? We are a young family with a disabled child. His health is now being put at risk as he has respiratory issues that require us to give him steam baths regularly. I am utterly disgusted with Hastings lack of morals. I have hone, contents and car insurance with them. Not for much longer!! Reviewed on: 27th October 2023
