Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) provides perspective regarding challenges within the property insurance market and their impact on consumers prior to the committee’s hearing on the issue this week. Property insurance is the first line of financial defense for homeowners, commercial owner/operators, and lenders in the event a property is damaged.
