Chapter 375

Effective - 28 Aug 1977, 2 histories, see footnote (history) bottom

  375.004.  Refusal to renew, when authorized. — 1.  No insurer shall refuse to renew a policy unless the insurer or its agent mails or delivers to the named insured, at the address shown in the policy, at least thirty days' advance notice of its intention not to renew.  The notice shall state the insurer's actual reason for proposing the action, the statement of reason to be sufficiently clear and specific so that a person of average intelligence can identify the basis for the insurer's decision without further inquiry.  Generalized terms such as "personal habits", "living conditions", or "poor morals" shall not suffice to meet the requirements of this subsection.  The notice shall also state that the insured may be eligible for insurance through the Missouri basic property insurance inspection and placement program.  This section shall not apply:

  (1)  If the insurer has manifested its willingness to renew; or

  (2)  In case of nonpayment of premium; or

  (3)  If the named insured has indicated he does not wish to have the policy renewed; or

  (4)  If the insured fails to pay any advance premium required by the insurer for renewal.

  2.  Renewal of a policy shall not constitute a waiver or estoppel with respect to grounds for cancellation which existed before the effective date of the renewal.
