Why was my property and casualty insurance canceled?  

On June 3, 2022, Demotech withdrew its financial stability rating assigned to the Southern Fidelity Insurance company after failing to secure reinsurance for the 2022 hurricane season. Shortly thereafter, Southern Fidelity entered into receivership and is to be liquidated. It is the fourth insurer that was declared insolvent since February, leaving thousands of previously insured customers without a policy.

How does this impact homeowners? 

This situation puts homeowners in a tough position. Not only will it be harder to find homeowners insurance – it will cost more. To layer on the challenges, some available insurers will only cover homes valued up to $700,000 and replacement costs have gone up 16%. If your home has appreciated in value, even if you have coverage, it’s time to relook at your policies to ensure you have the right level of coverage for your property.

For those trying to purchase a property, this could make the closing process even more complicated.

What is a receivership?

A receivership is a process that is put in place to protect a company. A period of receivership may be thought of as a means of protecting a company in financial trouble. During this time, A "receiver," or trustee, steps in to manage the entire company, its assets, and all financial and operating decisions.
