Be Careful who Pays the Insurance on Your Property

Posted in on September 29, 2016

The New York Eastern District of New York recently reiterated that where a father paid the homeowner’s insurance on a home owned by his son, that the Homeowner’s insurance company had no obligation to pay the claim, since the son was not an additional insured on the insurance policy and the father did not have an insurable interest.  While the court held that legal or equitable interest is not necessary to support an insurable interest, the mere possession or license to use the property is insufficient to support an insurable interest. See Mikaelian v. Liberty Mutual Insurance Company (EDNY Sept 8, 2016).
