Asked on 05/30/2012

Homowner liability insurance I am looking for a howmowner liability insurance policy only. The property is currently being held by the bank covers only their interest (collateral). I am looking for a policy which will covr my personal liability only. dow anything like that exists? Unfortuantely between weather and a few unrelated incidents, I cannot get the insurance for the house and at this time the bank is doing that. As such, this is not my main concern right now but am inteested in having protection for visitors etc who come to the house.

When there is a history of homeowner policy losses it makes it difficult to find a policy to protect you and the bank. Since the bank has placed force placed insurance on the home to cover their interests, you will need protection or liability losses as well as damages to your personal property.If the losses you have previously suffered were all damages to the home itself, you may be able to find an insurance company willing to write insurance on your personal property and liability. Usually, this would be a renters policy, but sometimes an insurance company will give a more preferred rate under a condominium policy. If this is not available, you may have to seek out a specialty insurance company. Their rates can be higher, but they can often write a custom-made policy to fit your needs. Find an independent insurance agent in your area and see if they have an insurance company available.
