The member must carry full coverage insurance listing the credit union as loss payee until the mortgage is completely satisfied, including Flood insurance if a flood certificate shows the mortgaged property lies in a flood zone. Proof of all necessary insurance must be on hand and reviewed prior to closing/funding. We now require a title policy on all property loans.
