Texas law requires rates for insurance offered in Texas to be reasonable, adequate, not excessive to the risks for which they apply, and not unfairly discriminatory.
Residential property rates utilize a system called “file and use” Under this system, companies file their rates with TDI, but they do not need prior approval to implement new rates. If TDI determines that a company’s rates are excessive, the company can be ordered to pay refunds to the policyholders it overcharged. Companies can appeal adverse rate decisions.
A company can only change your individual premium at your policy renewal time.
