Providing these facts will help educate the lender on a suitable loss limit, but be cautious not to recommend a reduced limit and always provide higher limit options in writing.
It is no secret that providing creative solutions in these unique situations solidify your relationship with your client as trusted partner. Remember, the most important step is to pre-emptively request lender requirements before any closings or renewal date to avoid delays. Often there is an opportunity for a borrower to negotiate insurance requirements if it is addressed early in the borrowing negotiations. This also allows your team to pinpoint what coverages and limits are needed, and to expedite your client’s closing.
