Home Insurance

In most cases, yes, you will need to purchase a homeowners insurance policy before the lender will allow the closing to proceed. Otherwise, the loan won’t be finalized and funded — and nobody wants that. In a typical scenario, the borrower will bring either the policy itself, or proof of the purchase, to the closing / settlement process. It can also be faxed to the lender and/or escrow company prior to closing.

Home Insurance Protects You, as Well as the Lender.  This is why most lenders require proof of coverage before closing. They want to make sure their interests are being protected in the event of fire, earthquake, flooding, etc. 

The common practice is that you have to bring a homeowners insurance binder with you to the closing procedures. This binder is provided by the insurer and is proof that you have a policy in place that covers the property. In some cases, a letter from the insurer will suffice, or a photocopy of the coverage document(s).

You can choose which insurance company you want to use. You should shop around for the best policy, just as you shopped around for the best deal on a home loan. The cost of coverage varies based on the amount of protection, the size of the deductible, and other factors.

In most cases you will need to purchase a basic home insurance policy before closing day comes around.
