When your car is repossessed when do you cancel your insurance coverage?
The same day that you determine you aren’t getting it back. It would be wise to wait until then because if the bank repo’d it to kinda just remind you that being Three payments behind isn’t a good thing, you might get it back and then you don’t have to go through the entire insurance application process again. ResponseYeah for sure do not cancel anything until it is no longer in your name either. I’d wait until the title transfer is finish as well. ResponseYou should cancel your insurance the moment your car is repossessed.The moment the car is hooked up(as the above two repo morons will tell you)it is no longer your car.So if you would like to cover someone elses vehicle with your insurance you go right ahead but you are wasting your money and your insurance coverage.Dishonest repo guys(like the above two scumbags) want you to keep the insurance on the vehicle so if they harm the car or steal stuff from it it will go on your insurance. Reaction Amendment: Never cancel an insurance policy until you have a fresh policy in place. If you do it will cost you more in the long run. Insurance companies are looking for loyalty and longevity without lapse in coverage. Sometimes you can possibly suspend, cancel or reduce coverage but never cancel it. The moment the vehicle is repossessed does not release you from the contract agreement. Read it. In most cases until the vehicle is transferred out of your name via the title of ownership, you must maintain physical harm coverage or they can force place it and take the premium out of the proceeds. Reduce to minimum but don’t cancel it.

What should you do if after a car accident your insurance company claims they did not receive your payment and sent you a cancellation notice but you did not receive it?
Several answers apply here. Very first did you budge and if so did you send your insurance company a switch of address? Secondly did the accident take place before or after the effective date of cancellation? Insurance companies don’t have to prove you received the cancellation notice, they only have to prove they mailed the cancellation to the last known address you provided them. If you budge and do not send them a switch of address, you are in trouble. Lastly, did you pay the insurance premium for which they cancelled you? If so produce your cashed check and they will have to reinstate your policy by most state laws. If you did not pay as required, then they cancelled you for non payment, and in all likelihood you are cancelled and have no coverage. If the accident took place before the date of cancellation, go see an attorney.

Technically they can do what ever they want and or think they can get away with.

(recall that disclaimer you had to sign stating just that?) then to compound matters, no other insurance company will touch you while you have an open claim. Your mortgage company, assuming you do not own outright, will have an acceleration clause in your mortgage contract that kicks in when a non insured condition occurs and they have to append their own expensive coverage. Pretty bummed out yet? There is one avenue of recourse… If you have the resources to retain an attorney, you can sue the insurance company. Once the mortgage company sends you their notice, you now have authentic and lightly verifiable damages. Keeping in mind that insurance companies have deep pockets and are in the business of fighting legal battles on a daily basis they have the capability to wear you down and know this very well. Shoot for an instant injunction staying the cancellation until the repairs can be finished. Being fair, this is a shot in the dark but a sympathetic judge may help you. Please post your outcome so as to help others.

However, if you leave your purse in the car and it is stolen, it is not covered because it is not permanently affixed to the vehicle.

However, terminating policies for that reason is a fairly lengthy process and requires regulatory approval. Most states have consumer protection laws as part of their Insurance Codes that define and delimit the types of offenses for which an insured may be canceled (if found guilty). More likely, at least for a very first offense, the result will be a premium increase. Additionally, the circumstances under which an insured may be “dropped” must be part of the underwriting guidelines that the insured files and must get approved as part of it application to transact insurance business in the state. Admittedly, tho’, some states are more/less consumer friendly than others. It is significant that the person whose insurance has been canceled budge quickly to substitute it. This is because motor vehicle authorities track cancellations and, if due to a cancellation, the persons is no longer in compliance with the state’s Financial Responsibility Law which requires the maintenance of auto insurance, his/her license/tags may be suspended until the insurance is substituted. For substituting you can check a comparisson site like this one where you can get free quotes from different companies
