How can I get a refund on my homeowner's insurance?

Am I able to get a full refund on my homeowner's insurance since I don't own the house anymore? I sold my house and moved out of the state about six months ago. It took awhile for the post office to forward the mail to me and I see that my former insurance company has still been deducting the monthly payments from my account.

Answer
“Don’t worry, you can get your insurance payments refunded!
Gather together any documentation showing when you sold the home. Then get in touch with your insurance company and fax or email the documents as proof that you are no longer the homeowner.
Every insurance company is different, so you may be refunded right away or there may be a few days of review time. Either way, the insurance carrier should be sending a full refund back to you.
Keep in mind, anytime time you make life changes, such as a move, it is a great time to re-shop both your home and auto insurance policies. By bundling your auto and home insurance, you can save with a multi-line discount.
