The lender may put a policy in place at the owners expense and it may only cover the banks interest for replacement value. It is important to note that it may not protect the owners from liability. At all costs I would recommend making sure a full and proper liability and replacement insurance policy is in full on the home. Otherwise the owner could be exposing themselves to some huge potential disaster financially. If there is one thing i wouldn;t mess around with, it is the insurance.

Hi Cleo,
The mortgage company will put a policy on the house which generally costs more & they will take the money from the homeowners sale monies whether it be from their profit or if its a short sale that amount as well as all other necessary charges will be included in the final Hud & be paid directly to the bank not the homeowner.

If teh home owner does not pay their home owners insurance, the mortgage company can secure a policy for them and charge the home owner for it, it is like double what normal insurance costs and can be added to what you owe on the property.. In addition not paying your insurance is a trigger for them being abloe to call teh note and begin foeclosure.

Hey Cleo -

It is always good to have insurance on a property that you own. They are liable if the home is uninsured and there is a fire or other disaster.

Good Luck!
