July 9, 2012 - PRLog -- It's not easy being 'Green' according to new statistics from comparison site 27.6% of customers living on a road named Green Way have claimed on their home insurance in the last five years.

The figures also reveal that living at house number 166 can be unlucky too: 21.9% of UK customers living at 166 have also claimed on their home insurance ( within the last five years.

The highest amount of cash paid out to claimants went to residents of Portland Road, where average claims exceeded £25,000, followed by Castle Street residents whose average claims came to £13,671 per resident.

Unsurprisingly the least claims were made in the more remote areas. The Scottish Borders registered the fewest claims, where the door number 7 was unluckiest. In London it's people living behind the number 93 who might be worried as they are the ones with the highest volume of claims over the last five years, coming in at just over 19%.

The number 60 is unlucky not only for homeowners living in Central Scotland (almost 25%), but also for those who reside in the East of England where 60 is also the most likely to have had a home insurance claim, with almost 19% of the residents putting in a claim during the last five years.

Gareth Lane, home insurance expert at, said: "As a person looking to buy a house in the near future I'll think twice about moving into 166 Green Way. Joking aside, if these trends continue, on average more than 14 per cent of customers could claim on their home insurance in the next five years, with an average claim amount of around £2,000.

"During these hard economic times and extreme weather it's important to find the right cover at the right price."
