Can you sell a house without home insurance?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on March 5, 2021

I inherited a house from my grandmother after her death. I'm looking to sell it, but the property has no home insurance. Can I sell the place anyway?

Yes, you can sell a house without having homeowners insurance on it. You are only required to carry homeowners insurance if you have a mortgage on your home and your lender requires that you carry the coverage. Beyond that, it is completely up to you.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
