What is force-placed insurance?

In order to get a loan to buy a vehicle, you must have insurance to cover the vehicle itself. If you fail to obtain insurance or you let your insurance lapse, the contract usually gives the lender the right  to get insurance to cover the vehicle. This insurance is called “force-placed insurance.” 

This insurance protects only the lender, not you, but the lender will charge you for the insurance. Force-placed insurance is usually a lot more expensive than what you can obtain by finding an insurance policy yourself.
