I'm in the process of selling my late mother's house. It is scheduled to complete on Friday. However, the insurance ceases on Wednesday.

I am hopeful the existing insurer will agree to a short extension. If not, can anyone recommend who I can approach for what is likely to be a very short period of insurance.

If it was me though, I'd probably take the risk of leaving it uninsured. (I lived he for 23 years without insurance, so I'd be prepared to risk a few days for another property!).
If you're not happy to risk being uninsurance for a couple of days then ring the insurance company and ask if you can extend it for two days.

Thanks Buenchico and Maydup, that's useful. I definitely want in insured, I don't want the risk of something going wrong in those 2 days and being clobbered. Hopefully the existing insurers will be helpful.
You could always try offering to make a contribution to the buyer's insurance cost provided they insure it early.
