What Happens If I Cancel My Home Insurance Policy Early?

If you cancel your home insurance, you might be elligible for penalities and fines. Switching providers may be expensive due to fines, additional fees, and money owing. Consider the costs and benefits before canceling your insurance. If you do switch, contact your mortgage company. If you live in Cincinnati, OH, call McCluskey Insurance Services LLC.

Consequences of Canceling Homeowners Insurance 

The procedure of canceling your home insurance is quite simple. But bear in mind that insurance providers do not allow policy cancellations within 60 days after purchase. You must have had a policy for at least that period to be eligible for cancellation. 

Call your agent or company and write a letter informing them of your decision to cancel the coverage. Include your policy number, name, insured home address, and planned cancellation date in the letter. You can also request the provider to pay you for the shortfall if you paid your subscription in full. 

Send a physical letter to insurance office and keep the receipt duplicate. Many insurance companies impose a penalty if you cancel your coverage before it expires. The costs vary significantly between insurance companies, so check with yours to see what they are and how you may avoid them. 

You may also owe money to your insurance provider if you cancel. Most insurance companies provide home insurance financing for a set period. Your monthly payments will cover the cost if you retain your coverage for the whole policy period. You may pay the difference if you cancel halfway through.

Canceling your insurance plan and switching suppliers might save you money or give you better coverage. But you should weigh all costs and rewards carefully. These might include cancellation fees or any outstanding liabilities. If you switch insurance providers, ensure the old and new plans, overlap to keep your escrow account active.
