(b) If upon receipt of the written request from the insurance producer, the insurer cancels the policy, such cancellation shall be made in accordance with the policy provisions regarding cancellation for nonpayment of premium and on a pro-rata basis.  The producer is entitled to and has a lien on any return premium for the policy, to the extent of the amount owed by the insured to the producer, for such policy.

(c) Any insurance producer or insurer who violates any provisions of this section shall be subject to the provisions of section 38a-817.
