Do I need to obtain homeowner’s insurance before the closing?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Once you accept your mortgage commitment, notify your insurance agent that you intend to purchase a new home. Your agent will usually request a copy of your mortgage commitment, since it sets forth certain information regarding your lender’s requirements for your insurance. Your insurance agent will prepare your policy and provide you with the documents you will need in order to close. Be prepared to pay a full year of your insurance premium to your agent when you have the policy prepared. Your mortgage lender will not allow the closing to be scheduled without this insurance in place and proof that this has been done.
