“If you do not inform your insurance company that you operate a business out of your home, they can decline a claim if you ever have one, and they also have the ability to cancel your homeowners policy completely for underwriting reasons. It’s very important to let your insurance company know about any business being conducted so that you are insured properly and you don’t run into any issues during a claim. It’s better to be forthcoming now, even if you’re a few weeks late in notifying your insurance company. “
If you don't tell your home insurance company that you're running a business from your house and they find out, what will happen? Will there be any penalties?Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on March 25, 2021
I've been running my business from home for the last few weeks. It looks like this is going to be a permanent arrangement. I forgot to notify my home insurance company about this, and now I'm worried that I'll be penalized in some way.
