New rules for cancelling an insurance policy

As we discussed last month, a new law regarding the cancellation of an insurance contract was being debated in the House. It has now been published in the official government bulletin and will come into effect on 1 October 2024.

The House passed the law restricting the link between mortgage loans and insurance

There has also been further progress on the implementation of a law aimed at restricting the link between mortgage loans and fire insurance. The House has now passed this bill in plenary session.

Consumers will now be able to take out a new fire insurance or outstanding balance insurance policy with another insurer free of charge once a third of the mortgage term has expired.
