Docket No. INS-06-2062, Decision Issued June 23, 2006
The insured requested a hearing following receipt of a notice of homeowners insurance policy cancellation citing the failure to comply with loss control recommendations as the reason for cancellation. At hearing, the company alleged that it sent a loss control recommendation letter to the insured and it has been unable to ascertain that the requested improvements have been made. The company further charged that the insured is operating an uninsured business on the premises. The insured discussed his responses to the recommendations.
Held: For the insured. The applicable statute,
24-A M.R.S.A. § 3049(10), permits policy cancellation for the failure
to comply with reasonable loss control recommendations within 90 days
after notice from the insurer.
