The Named InsuredYes. It is a legal issue.

A homeowner's policy insures the named insured for damage to their home. This assumes the named insured maintains an insurable interest in the house, meaning that they have not sold it to someone else. The policy cannot be transfered to a new owner.

Yes. The legal owner must be named as an insured on the policy. It is illegal to insure the property of another where no insurable interest exists.

Yes, anyone with an interest in the property should be on the homeowner's insurance to protect their "share" of the property. If there are multiple owners, they can all share one policy, but it needs to name all of them, otherwise, when someone makes a claim, the insurance company may refuse to pay for damage to something in the home that belongs to the uninsured owner.
