Mil­lions reg­is­tered at wrong ad­dresses

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

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.”
