No insurer shall fail to renew a policy unless it shall mail or deliver to the named insured, at the address shown in the policy and to the named creditor loss payee, at least thirty (30) days' advance notice of its intention not to renew.  This section shall not apply if there is no named creditor loss payee and:

(a) If the insurer has manifested its willingness to renew, subject to certain specified conditions which are not met by the insured;  nor

(b) If the insured has manifested its unwillingness to renew;  nor

(c) In case of nonpayment of premium;  nor

(d) In case of failure to make timely payment of dues to, or to maintain membership in good standing with, a designated association, corporation or other organization where the original issue of such policy or renewal was dependent upon such membership;  provided that, notwithstanding the failure of an insurer to comply with this section, the policy shall terminate on the effective date of any other insurance policy with respect to any automobile designated in both policies.

Renewal of a policy shall not constitute a waiver or estoppel with respect to grounds for cancellation which existed before the effective date of such renewal, and if a policy shall be cancelled as authorized by this article prior to such policy's renewal, such cancellation shall terminate any right of renewal conferred by this article.
