What is the name of your state? FL

My home ins. co sent me a letter in June saying they would cancel on the 3 year anniversary of my buying the house. That would have been 10/9/04. I was calling around getting quotes and someone said there was a moretorium (sic) on cancelling policies because of the hurricanes. I'm getting an inspection tomorrow and I will get another policy, but my mort. co. sent me a letter saying they would force more expensive ins. in 60 days if I didn't pay the premium. I haven't called the old ins. co. but it looks like they cancelled. Are they not supposed to cancel until the 30th of Nov? Could this be a problem? I still need to make some phone calls, but if push comes to shove, do I have any legal recourse? Should I call the attorney general?


P.S. The reason they gave me for cancelling was "Agent no longer represents company". Huh?



If that's the case, maybe you could find another agent that represents the same company.
