What does your contract say?
Usually there should be some provision.

Not sure what your agreement is, but in a mortgage situation, a lender probably couldn't foreclose on the property, however they would have the right to force-place coverage on the home and bill the buyer. Typically forced-coverage is way more expensive than coverage that you pick on your own, so that is usually a deterrent

You don't want coverage lapsing for even a day, because if something happens then you might be up $hit's creek. So time is of the essence to contact the buyer and, if necessary, take action to get it insured.

You can go to the website to see what areas qualify. Most lenders want you to have at least a 640 credit score for USDA. May be able to find lower but I would just find a lender to help you work on your credit and make sure it's improving and not getting worse.

Best of luck to you,
