Question from homeowner: My homeowner’s insurance won’t renew my policy because my loan is in foreclosure

Huntington Beach CA – The Stop Foreclosure Institute recently received a question from Tim. Here is Tim’s Question.

“I have an elderly friend who recently finalized a loan modification through her lender. The mortgage company shows on their website that the mod has been processed and the new terms are in effect.

However, since foreclosure proceedings were begun before the mod was approved, her homeowner’s insurance holder will not renew her coverage policy, since the local Clerk of Courts records show that the loan is in a foreclosure process.

The mortgage company has not sent the Clerk of Courts notice that the foreclosure case is closed. What can she do to avoid losing her insurance coverage?”

An elderly person almost loses their home to foreclosure and manages to save it at the last minute, only to find out her insurance company wants to kick her to the curb?

Give me a break! That’s pathetic. If I had my insurance with that company, I would fire them immediately!

Here is my suggestion. The first thing your friend should do is to contact the State Insurance Commissioner and the State Attorney General.

Insurance is highly regulated. There are things that insurance companies are allowed to charge more money for and things that they are not allowed to charge more.

I doubt that paying your mortgage late is one of them. More than likely, the insurance company is breaking the insurance regulations of the state.

(This is one of the things we use when negotiating short sales. We have studied to learn all the rules and guidelines. When a lender doesn’t follow a short sale guideline, we will report them to the appropriate agency.)

If that doesn’t work, then I would recommend your friend contact the local media. That is a dastardly thing for the insurance company to do. I’m sure that the general public would agree as well. I think the media would like the story.
