I don't know if it is legal, but it is definitely unethical. Unfortunately, I heard such complains too:( That's why it is important to read your contract while you sign it.

They can cancel you with or without cause, just as you can do the same.

They can cancel your policy WITHOUT A REASON.
Banks, home insurance companies and health insurance companies share a business platform of collecting penalties or the denial of service to create the profit margins they expect.
To include the word 'ethical' in the same sentence containing these enterprises would be misguided.
These companies are able to do whatever they please.
Be aware, the time required to engage in this battle could put the requirements of your mortgage in conflict. Insurance, especailly the ramifications of FEMA & FLOOD, is going to become an alarming issue in the coming year.

Depends on the claim and also the type of policy you have. The answer is yes it can happen. Should it have happened to you? No way of telling without more information.

I think that's a great question for a real estate attorney. We Realtors cannot offer legal opinions on the fine print that is on an insurance policy.
