    Planning for Homeowners Insurance

    If I file a Chapter 7, is it likely my current homeowners insurance is going to not renew the policy due to this? I have USAA, pay through escrow and have never filed a claim.

    If so my understanding is it would be best to start a new 1 year policy right before I file to give me maximum time before renewal. Are there certain insurance companies that are likely to renew me despite the bankruptcy that I should look at?

    I have been in this business for over 25 years and I have yet to see an issue pop up with a homeowners policy and any client relating to the filing of a bk if premiums are paid timely.

    Since your insurance is paid through your mortgage escrow and you are current in your mortgage payments I wouldn't worry about it.



      You will lose your full-site online access with USAA. I pay online through their mobile site.

      No big jump on premiums - we have bought/sold 7 vehicles since discharge, added/kept a 1 million dollar umbrella liability policy and changed from a homeowners policy to a renters policy. All at premiums that could not be beat. YMMV. Good luck!

        If you fall behind in payments, or try to go to another insurance company while in bankruptcy or after, you could have trouble--we did. See this thread:

        Good wishes~~~~
