Homeowners with Chinese drywall losing their insurance

October 15th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

People who purchased houses with Chinese drywall (the kind that has been linked with a rotten egg smell and corrosion) are running into a problem when they file a claim with their homeowners insurance companies.  Many of the companies are denying the claims because it’s considered a building defect and then canceling the policies until the problem is fixed.  Because people need to keep insurance on the home as a condition of the mortgage, this could cause them problems with their lenders.  It’s a sad situation, especially in this economic climate.  You can read more about it at http://www.comcast.net/articles/news-national/20091015/US.Chinese.Drywall/
