HOA Insurance Renewal Required to Close?Here's the issue:- The HOA has a master insurance policy that includes HO-6 ("walls in") coverage for the residents. The policy expires on July 1 and the HOA has not yet renewed the policy.- The HOA approved renewing the policy in May, as it does every year, and instructed its property manager to obtain 3 bids for the same coverage as it has now (i.e., "apples-to-apples" bids), also as it does every year. If the current carrier is the lowest or middle bid, it will select the current carrier. If the current carrier is the highest bid, it will select the middle bid. The property manager is instructed to send the check as soon as the bids are in.- All 3 insurance applications were submitted in May and the HOA is waiting for the bids to come back. They are expected to come in in the next week or two. No further action is required by the HOA board to renew the policy - the property manager has been given the authority to send the check as soon as it receives the 3rd bid.- We were scheduled to close on May 31 (40 days after execution of the PSA). Buyer did not contact this lender until late in the process, so the lender had only had 20 days to review the file at that point and was not prepared to close. If it was prepared that day, insurance would not have been an issue b/c the lender requires 30 days of remaining term on the master policy.- I spoke with the property manager and he is willing to provide any documentation requested, inlcuding meeting minutes, documenting that the renewal of the policy has been approved and is imminent based on the procedure described above.- This HOA is for a new community that is only 3 years old, flush with cash, NO members in default, etc.Pretty frustrating for me. I understand the lender's requirement, but I also think common sense should prevail here. Any ideas on how to get over the hump?June 04 2014 - Mission Viejo00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
