Dissed By Your Home Insurance Company?
That's the way some folks in southwest Florida feel. Citizens Insurance Company has sent out thousands of letters to policy holders with coastal property demanding that they prove their home is their primary residence.
It's because of a change in the law, says an article in news-press.com of Fort Myers. The background:
"In the spring, the Legislature passed new laws that treat second-home owners different from Citizens policyholders who insure their primary residences through the state-run insurer of last resort.
"Starting with new policies and renewal notices that go out after March 1, owners of vacation homes, rentals and other non-homestead property will be kicked out of Citizens and forced to try to buy their insurance again on the private market."
