Insurance Question from Saint Robert, MO

Asked on 03/12/2015

Is there Missouri state case law showing who is eligible to recieve benefits persuant to whom was issued a Flood Policy for homes in a no-flood zone? I co-own a home with an ex-girlfriend that has stopped paying on the mortgage of the home since February 2013. I started flood insurance (not mandatory) on the home beginning September 2012. From the start and subsequent renewals, I've been paying/renewing the policy as it was only issued in my name-flood insurance company verified that was legal.The home flooded in August 2013 that created a claim that only I paid the deductable on. The parent insurance company created the claim in both names and sent it to the flood insurance company/mortgage company. Now she wont sign the 2-party check
