There are several ways. One way, you can contact the Insurance Agent directly and inform them that you have just taken an Assignment of the Security Instrument or have just given a new loan to the property owner. You should indicate to the insurance agent as to which position (either 1st or 2nd position) your security instrument is in. Normally, they will ask you for the information in order to include you onto the Insurance Policy and where to mail a copy of the policy.
The second way is, if you have taken as Assignment to the Security Instrument, is to have an assignment letter signed by the original note holder authorizing the change in lien holder (from original lien holder to you) and to cooperate with said new lien holder. You also enclose a letter from yourself to the insurance agent informing him/her how you are to read on the insurance policy, your address and where to forward all future insurance coverage letters.
Always have the property owners name, property address and insurance policy number handy when calling or writing to the insurance agent.
Hope this helps.
Have a happy and prosperous New Year.
