Yes, we do this very thing all the time. Primarily due to vacant houses, which are insured via one company, and the liability is carried with another carrier. Occupied properties are insured within the same carrieer.
Banks typically want to that the structure is covered for damage, and less concerned over the liability issue. Doesn’t make a lot of sense, but I think they simply assume you will have liability coverage… Besides, if a huge claim is made, and the benefactor of the claim attempts to move on your assets, the Lender is secured with a Mtg or Deed of Trust, and all such claims are subordinated to them and Taxes… So not much risk to a Lender in this instance… in reality.
