Millions registered at wrong addresses
RESEARCH from Direct Line home insurance has found that 6.8 million or 14 per cent of UK residents are living unofficially in other people’s homes.
The study also found that a further 7.1 million are registered under the wrong addresses with banks, insurers, local councils, the DVLA and other key organisations.
This widespread use of incorrect personal information raises concerns that the validity of home insurance policies may be compromised and that sensitive financial information could be misplaced.
Jenny Trueman, home insurance manager at Direct Line says: “People risk being fined by the DVLA and losing highly sensitive financial information.”
