How long is a conviction relevant for house insurance

Thanks for the information and the time.

It depends upon the insurer but normally they ask for convictions within the last 10 years.

Of course not all convictions are relevant and wouldn't make a difference but they are entitled to ask.

Hope this helps. Please let me know if you need more information.

I don't like using the phone as I am

No, that is fine.

Thanks for your help the conviction that is relevant is over 20 years ago

Are they asking about any conviction ever?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
We have always assumed that it had to be disclosed but from what you are indicating it's up to them to ask

It is up to them to ask but you need to read the questions carefully.
