    My Churchill Buildings Insurance renewal came in and amendment to the T&C s seem to want to stop you using your own claims assesor.
    Quote:

    Professional Customer Representative
    We will not deal with aprofessional customer representative unless they are authorised and regulated by their regulatory authority.
    If that is the Financial Conduct Authority or the Claims Management Regulator within the Ministry of Justice, you can check the Financial
    Services Register www.fca.org.uk/register/www.claimsregulation.gov.uk/search.aspx for
    details about your professional customer representative We will not continue dealing with a professional customer representative and instead only deal with you directly if: (i) the professional customer
    representative’s
    behaviour is unreasonable;
    (ii) the negotiations regarding settlement are
    not concluded within a reasonable timeframe;
    and/or (iii) there is no reasonable prospect of a
    settlement being concluded in line with the policy
    within a reasonable timeframe.You may not assign or transfer your
    policy, or any right or obligation under that policy to any third party, including a professional customer representative, without our prior express written consent.
    We will always retain the right to communicate directly with you even if
    you have instructed a professional customer representative.If you instruct a professional customer representative, we may still pay any claim settlement directly to you. If you ask us,we may at our own discretion agree to pay the claim settlement to the professional customer representative. If we do this we will have paid your claim in full, and will not be responsible for the work carried out by your professional
    customer representative, or whoever they appoint, and will not be liable for any further costs associated with that work.

    Churchill is near the bottom end of the market. NFU near the very top. You need to decide if you want quality or budget.
