Section 627.783, Florida Statutes 2009

627.783  Rate deviation.--

(1)  A title insurer may petition the office for an order authorizing a specific deviation from the adopted premium. The petition shall be in writing and sworn to and shall set forth allegations of fact upon which the petitioner will rely, including the petitioner's reasons for requesting the deviation. Any authorized title insurer, agent, or agency may join in the petition for like authority to deviate or may file a separate petition praying for like authority or opposing the deviation. The office shall rule on all such petitions simultaneously.

(2)  If, in the judgment of the office, the requested deviation is not justified, the office may enter an order denying the petition. An order granting a petition constitutes an amendment to the adopted premium as to the petitioners named in the order, and is subject to s. 627.782.
