You may have received a letter from your home insurance carrier telling you that they want you to do a particular repair. Are you required to do this repair just because they want you to? The simple answer to this question is yes since they can cancel your policy if you don’t comply. For the most part, if your insurance company tells you a repair is necessary it is best to do it as soon as possible. Pizano Insurance in Wayzata, MN will be happy to discuss this issue with you if you have questions.
Some repairs that insurance companies request may be the result of an inspection that was made of your home and others may be the result of a claim that you recently had. An issue may have come to light and they are within their rights to ask that this issue be corrected. However, sometimes the insurance companies can be a little too aggressive in their requests and it may be possible to delay if not totally avoid the repairs that they are demanding.
If they tell you that they will cancel your insurance if you don’t replace your roof, you may be able to get a contractor to do an inspection that can give you at least a little time. If you have a contract to have a repair done within a reasonable amount of time, say 6-8 months, the insurance company may be willing to work with you.
When it comes to home insurance companies, basically they hold all the cards. They have the insurance and you need it so that places you at a serious disadvantage when it comes to fighting them.
