Sure, So long as you disclose the previous claim to the new company.

Failure to inform the new insurance company of previous claims is insurance fraud by omission of a known fact and is a felony offense. Should the new insurer find out that you intentionally tried to conceal the previous claims they can deny any and all coverage under the new policy.

Can you change homeowners insurance companies if you have a claim with the old company for hidden dry rot?

You can change insurance companies at any time you want to. Dry rot is not covered under any homeowners insurance policy and will not be covered by any other company that you change to. When the company finds that you are filing claims for such items and are mad because it wasn't covered the new application may be rejected as well by the new company. Dry rot is a maintenance issue and not the result of a covered cause under home insurance. To be covered by home insurance it must be the result of a covered cause which generally means it must be sudden and accidental.

Can you change home insurance after a claim?

If you have filed a home insurance claim through your existing home insurance company, you do have the right to change insurance companies if you were unhappy with the service you were provided, or for any other reason. As long as you have coverage in place at the time of the claim, you can cancel your policy and bind coverage with another company. It is important to receive quotes and bind your coverage before cancelling your policy because some companies will not accept homeowners with claims on their claims history report.

How can you get a refund when your mortgage company and you both pay for homeowners?

Yes and it happens quite often. Usually when you let you Homeowners insurance cancel or change companies and fail to notify your insurance company to send a copy to the mortgagee. If the mortgagee does not have proof that you have insurance and have them listed on such insurance, they will place "force-placed" coverage on the property to protect themselves and they will charge you for this coverage. As long as you get them notified and proof quickly, they will cancel their policy and refund you the premium. Make sure you know that the coverage they purchase on your behalf only covers them and covers no contents of yours, no liability coverage, and only covers the bare minimum coverage. And it is usually more expensive than homeowners you buy on your own. When you get a mortgage on your home your agreement is that you keep insurance on the home. If you let it cancel or don't have such insurance you are in breech of contract and they could foreclose on your home or put this coverage on it, their choice.
