  20. Car Insurance screw job

    i have my car insurace with Lloyds TSB. essentially what has happened is that my insurance is due for renewl next month and i rang them to get a revised quote. the insurace has my mum as first driver and me as second named driver. somehow lloyds had me down as spouse and not as son in the policy. when i told them this was wrong they revised the premium i paid for last year and now say i owe an extra £500 to cover last years insurace as it was quoted wrong. what can i do to avoid paying this???

  22. Car Insurance screw job

    just found my certificate of motor insurance and motor insurance schedule,, neither say anything about how i am related to the main driver. TSB basically said its my duty to review the documents they send out, sign it and send it back. as the docs i have say nothing about me being son or spouse then they dont have a leg to stand on right???
  23. Car Insurance screw job

    the car is driven by both of us. can they make me pay even though i didnt make any claims last year? Ill have to check the original documents as to what it says on there. i filled it out online about 2 years ago so i mean it is possible that it was my mistake (damn scroll mouse). i can understand them wanting me to pay if i had used the insurance for a claim but seeing as i didnt and it seems to have been a genuine 100% mistake i dont think i should pay for something i havent used
