houseLender placed hazard insurance is a fundamental risk management tool for any lender with substantial exposure to uninsured real estate losses. When a mortgagor’s insurance lapses, a lender placed hazard insurance policy is often the only way to guarantee continued protection against the most common insurable perils.

  • 1-4 Family Residential dwellings
  • Commercial buildings
  • Multifamily residential
  • Mobile homes
  • Foreclosed properties/REO



  • Per property limits up to $10 million
  • Many coverage extensions and enhancements to meet lender’s specific insurance needs
  • Many deductible options
  • Monthly or annual premiums
