Homeowners Insurance

Does a zero dollar home insurance claim affect rating a policy?

If you were not paid out, a canceled claim should not have an effect on your premium. Database systems used for cataloging claims history can sometimes confuse this, however.

How do I get a false claim off my insurance report?

I would call my prior insurance company (your renters provider) showing the false claim and see how they have it marked. I would also have them send confirmation that the claim was dropped and not paid out.

Is it possible to bundle three lines of insurance?

It is challenging to say which insurer would be the best for bundling multiple lines of insurance. Most companies would likely give you multiple policies to cover your vehicles, RV, and homes.

Is it legal to change homeowners insurance policies without the approval of all parties on the deed?

As long as you're on the deed, you do not need permission from all parties to change your homeowners insurance if it is in your name. Anyone with a vested interest could also insure the property how they see fit. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

There is no straight-forward answer to what building materials you use for your house and the homeowners insurance rate you will end up with.

My roof has developed an issue over this past winter. Is this covered?

Sorry to hear about the issue. Hopefully, you can get it fixed quickly.

Homeowners Insurance

I started a claim but canceled it with no payout. Why is it on my CLUE report?

Unfortunately, if you start the claims process, the insurance company can list it on your CLUE report through LexisNexis which contains your claims history — even if there was no payout or resolution. You can dispute with State Farm to see if they will remove it, but at this point, that is really the only option which is definitely frustrating.
