Insurance Company Cancels
Your Homeowner Policy
Your insurer can cancel your homeowner policy, but it must provide you with a:
- 45-day advance written notice to cancel or non-renew your policy.
- 10-day advance written notice if you didn't pay your premiums on time.
- Clear explanation of why it cancelled or non-renewed your policy.
What happens if I have a home loan and can't find coverage?
If you don't have homeowner insurance, which is generally required by your loan agreement, your lender can buy its own coverage to protect its investment in your house. But it's expensive and they add the cost to your mortgage payments. And this coverage only protects your lender, not you.
