Can An Insurance Company Cancel My Auto Or Homeowner's Policy?

Yes. If an auto policy is involved, they can cancel if the consumer fails to pay the premium or if the consumer's license has been suspended or revoked during the term of the policy. If a homeowner's policy is involved, they can cancel if the consumer fails to pay their premium, if there is a fraud or serious misrepresentation when completing the insurance application, if the consumer is convicted of a crime or if changes are made to the property that increase the risk of loss. An insurance company can cancel a new policy for almost any reason within 60 days of the issue date of the new policy.
