As a homeowner keeping your property properly insured can give you peace of mind, but did you know if you have a mortgage on the property that insurance is most likely required? Most mortgage agreements require homeowners maintain and provide proof of adequate property insurance including hazard, windstorm and possibly even flood insurance if the property is in a Special Flood Hazard Zone. In addition, homeowners are typically required to include their mortgage company on the policy under the mortgagee clause, which is also referred to as a loss payee clause. Insurance companies often handle providing proof of insurance to the mortgage company listed on the policy, but providing proof is ultimately the homeowner's responsibility so it's a good idea to check with your mortgage company every year to make sure they received proof of coverage.
