Assurant Inc., under pressure from Florida regulators, agreed to cut rates 10 percent in the state for home insurance that borrowers must buy when they miss payments on their initial policies.

The new rates are expected to be effective in the first quarter of next year, the New York-based insurer said today in a statement distributed by Business Wire.
