What is lender placed insurance?

Lender Placed insurance is a policy placed on your property by your lender to protect their interest when your homeowner’s policy has lapsed or cancelled. If for any reason you cannot maintain your insurance policy the lender must take precautionary steps to ensure coverage at all times and their interest is protected. Lender Placed insurance covers only the dwelling and excludes all personal belongings and liability coverage.

I don’t understand why lenders insurance is more money,when it only covers the properties.. I am paying 3500.00 a year for my building. My insurance lapsed for 4 months. A year latter my bank wanted to charge me 22000.00 for lenders place insurance. My insurance company covered everthing from A-Z  for 3500.00.that is 6 1/2 x more. I no that is not right at all.I am going back and forth with them on how can this be resolved.If anyone knows please email with some help.

Thanks Dawn  apbkennels@yahoo.com

A Bank or Mortgage company requires that the borrower maintain "hazard" insurance and list them as an additional insured. The "hazard" insurance is a homeowners or dwelling fire policy. If they do not receive proof of insurance coverage or if they receive a cancellation from the insurance carrier they will secure coverage on your behalf to "protect their interest" . This policy is usually a Fire Policy that Only covers the Bldg for the amount of the loan. It will not provide coverage for personal property or liability. The premium is high and they will simply increase the mtge payment to escrow the payment for this policy.

Lender placed insurance is obtained by the lender when a borrower’s insurance has lapsed, cancelled, or proof of the customer’s insurance has not been received. Lender placed insurance coverage is necessary to protect the all parties’ interest if damage was to occur and the customer had not maintained adequate coverage. It is typically more expensive than insurance coverage purchased by the borrower because it must cover all properties, in all locations, and in all conditions. Lender placed insurance does not provide coverage for contents or liability.
