When a borrower has no insurance, or when coverage lapses, the lender is permitted to purchase insurance on their behalf – also known as "force placing." It has been alleged that certain financial institutions are abusing their authority when they force place insurance on their customers, who are forced to pay for the high costs of unnecessary or excessive coverage.
