Home Insurance and Dogs
The underwriter for the new MetLife home policy was ASI. The new rate was about $1200 and the MetLife auto was $1080, so I was saving considerable money.
A month after I switched, ASI informed me they were cancelling my police because I have "Mixed breed dogs of unknown origin". I do have 3 dogs, and they are mixed breed, but I keep them in a chain link fence. They are not pit bulls or rottweilers.
Now, it appears my only option is a home policy underwritten by MetLife. It is a "grandprotect" policy that is gong to cost $2000/year.
I'am a little leary about shopping around now because of the dog issue.
Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
