Auto Insurance Claims
Homeowner's Insurance

If you sell your fire damaged home prior to the payment of the insurance claim are you still entitled to the insurance money?

Or nothing at all. You owned the house at the time of the fire.

It was YOUR property that was damaged, and you owned fire insurance

to cover yourself against a loss from fire. When you sold your

fire-damaged home, you took a hit on the sale price: you didn't get

as much as you would have had the house been perfect. You are

entitled to whatever the claim adjuster estimated the cost of the

repair would be.
