The policy issued by the fund shall not provide coverage in the event that there is no companion policy at the time of loss. In such case, any unearned premiums shall be returned to the policyholder on a pro rata basis. Limits of coverage under a policy issued by the fund shall not exceed the limits of comparable coverages for fire and windstorm under the companion policy.
