Congregational & General (C&G) has become the latest insurer to write to its Hill House Hammond (HHH) policyholders asking them to renew elsewhere.

Sources said that the property insurer had a "sizeable" household account with HHH.

It is understood the letter asks HHH policyholders to renew their business with C&G through another high street broker, A-Plan Insurance.

The move follows Zurich's decision to write to its HHH policyholders asking them to renew their policies with Zurich through a broker rather than renew through Norwich Union Direct, as reported exclusively in Insurance Times (11 March).

C&G management were not available for comment as Insurance Times went to press.
