Lost Policy Release is a statement signed by the named insured releasing the insurer from all liability under a lost or misplaced insurance contract when the insured wishes to cancel the policy. Historically, cancellation of many insurance policies required the return of the original policy to the insurer, and a lost policy release served in place of the original policy.
What does it mean if the policy is lost?
Key Takeaways – A lost policy release (LPR) is a statement that absolves an insurance provider of liability. Modern policy cancellations no longer require the return of original policy documents, so lost policy releases are no longer required in the majority of insurance cases.
If a policyholder is switching to a different auto insurance provider, an auto insurer may require the policyholder to sign a lost policy release, though this transaction is likely to occur online. In the event that the policy was misplaced or lost, the insured was required to submit a lost policy release to demonstrate that the policy is still being canceled.
The lost policy release is used to indicate that the policyholder intends to cancel the policy.

What is the meaning of RCT in insurance?
– CoreLogic releases an updated reconstruction estimating and risk assessment solution to meet the rising demand for differentiating the characteristics of large tracts and high-value homes. CoreLogic ® (NYSE: CLGX), a leading global provider of property information, analytics, and data-enabled solutions, has announced the availability of its updated RCT Express ® reconstruction estimating and risk assessment solution, which now provides valuations for large tract homes (LTH).
This update enables insurers to more accurately evaluate LTH policies, providing the insurance industry with more effective overage adequacy tools. “The rising popularity of large tract homes has created new difficulties for insurers, who have historically struggled to differentiate these structures from high-value homes with more customized features,” said Benjamin Abbott, product manager for the CoreLogic Insurance Solutions group.
“Because of the size of these LTHs, many LTH homeowner’s insurance policies have valuations that are more appropriate for custom homes.” CoreLogic can identify granular characteristics of LTH structures within RCT Express. The following are some general distinctions between LTHs and high-value homes: Location and layout: LTHs typically encompass an entire subdivision and have few variations in building layout.
Materials: The materials used to build LTHs are of inferior quality compared to those used to build a high-value home. LTH construction practices are designed to be as efficient as possible, resulting in less waste, lower costs, and faster overall productivity. Soft costs, such as contingencies, architect fees, engineering fees, and markups, are more predictable and less expensive in LTHs than in high value homes.
“With our most recent RCT Express release, CoreLogic is enabling insurers to provide new levels of accuracy in their clients’ home property insurance policies, allowing them to continue to build policyholders’ trust and confidence.” Abbott added. RCT Express is a reconstruction estimating and risk assessment solution that provides an unprecedented view of structure risk to support the underwriting workflow and assist insurance carriers in extending the appropriate coverage and protecting policyholders more effectively.
