Lorraine Crandlemire v. Standard Fire Insurance Company
Docket No. INS-06-2058, Decision Issued June 27, 2006.
The insured requested a hearing following receipt of a notice of homeowners insurance policy nonrenewal citing unfavorable conditions of the property as the reason for nonrenewal. At hearing, the company alleged that a recommendation letter had been sent to the insured, and the insured had been allowed several extensions of time for the work to be completed. The company identified the conditions it believed were relevant. The insured’s son testified about his responses to the recommendations and the conditions cited.
Held: For the insured. The applicable statute,
24-A M.R.S.A. § 3051, provides that the “reason for nonrenewal
must be a good faith reason and related to the insurability of the property
or a ground for cancellation pursuant to section 3049.”
