It is a big surprise to many people that their home’s past can have a significant impact on the amount that they pay for insurance. If the previous owner of your home filed insurance claims in the past, your premium may be higher than a comparative home with no claim history. This is due to the fact that home insurance claims are entered into a database that that all insurance companies have access to.The Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE) provides a report that collects data from 7 years back which insurance companies use to determine the rates of premiums.
Unfortunately, the history of claims stays with the property and over 90% of Americans don’t know these reports even exist.
