Yes, All insurer are going to check your claims history either at the point of purchase or within 60 days of the policy effective date.

You can't hide claims anymore, It only takes the click of a single button and less tahn 1 second to retrieve your claims history.

It's best to be honest about your claims history. When the insure discovers that you have lied or attempted to conceal your previous claims, they may just decide to cancel you, not necessarily because of the claims but rather because you showed dishonesty in your application for insurance, misrepresenting your claims history on an insurance application is considered a form of "Insurance Fraud" which is a felony.. The insurers reasoning is that if you were dishonest about your driving record, then you are more likely to be dishonest about other things as well,


I have 2 claims for other companies and that hasn't affect me with the other insurance. I don't think they can find out. Insurance Fraud If the application asks about previous claims and you do not list them, your insurance will be cancelled if (when) they find out about them. I would be surprised if they did not. When I was shopping for new insurance, the agent pulled up my DMV records on his computer and I'm sure the claims information is available somewhere, too. If there was a police report but no claims of any sort, will they find out and will they increase my premiums just because of the police report?

Can insurance companies claim lapse of coverage in a situation where a purchase of home is thru a relative who maintains their coverage on the home until move in of the relative who purchased the home?

Yes. The previous owners insurance policy coverage does Not pass through to a new owner. You can not ride off the previous owners insurance policy.If all you had was the previous owners insurance policy, Then you had no insurance at all. You and your property were effectively uninsured. If a loss occurred, payment would be denied based on the fact the the named insured (previous owner) no longer has an ownership interest in the property and the new owner never contracted for an insurance policy. The old policy does not belong to you as a new owner.The previous owners policy was a contract specific to that named owner and his or her owned property with the insurance company and was between them. Once they sell, it is no longer their property. A new owner is not a named insured under the terms of the previous owners policy. The previous owner being a relative does not change this..When a property sells or changes hands the previous owners Insurance Policy ceases the exact moment down to the exact hour minute and second of the day the property changes hands. All coverage under the previous owners policy stops, it is null and void whether or not the insurance company has yet been notified of the change in ownership.The new owner has a responsibility to purchase and qualify for his or her own insurance coverage. All Property Insurance policies are like this and it is clearly stated in the terms of the insurance contract.
