How can State Farm decide NOT to renew some homeowners policies in certain Texas coastal communities? Is that legal?

Because there have been many hurricane claims over the last several years, and because State Farm is worried about the threat of major storms in the future, they decided to take action and not renew some policies. State Farm Texas Lloyd’s spokesman Kevin Davis said that, “We are the largest insurer of homes in Texas and the largest private insurer of homes along the Texas Coast. Even with this action, we will continue to be the largest private insurer along the Texas Coast.” 

The change to not renew a portion of its coastal Texas homeowners policies will benefit State Farm, but it will affect 11,000 policyholders in parts of the communities of Brazoria, Chambers, Galveston, Orange and Jefferson counties. This change will take effect on May 1, 2012.

Because this decision is affecting thousands of homeowners, the Texas Department of Insurance is looking into State Farm’s decision. They are working with State Farm to ensure that its actions are not in violation of state law, said Jerry Hagins, a spokesman for Texas Department of Insurance.
