DECISION & ORDER
ORDERED that the judgment is affirmed, with costs.
Contrary to the petitioner's contention, the Supreme Court properly found, upon documentary submissions in lieu of a framed-issue hearing, that Allstate Insurance Company demonstrated that its insured was provided with a notice of intent to cancel and a cancellation notice fully compliant with Banking Law § 576, more than one year prior to the subject accident (see Crump v Unigard Ins. Co., 100 NY2d 12, 16; Nassau Ins. Co. v Murray, 46 NY2d 828, 829-830; St. Vincent's Hosp. of Richmond v Government Empls. Ins. Co., 50 AD3d 1123, 1124; Matter of Autoone Ins. Co. v Zanders, 50 AD3d 682; Shia v McFarlane, 46 AD3d 320, 321; Residential Holding Corp. v Scottsdale Ins. Co., 286 AD2d 679, 680; Allstate Ins. Co. v Motor Veh. Acc. Indem. Co., 115 AD2d 264, 265). Accordingly, the Supreme Court properly, in effect, directed the parties to proceed to arbitration.
The petitioner's remaining contention is without merit.
SKELOS, J. P., COVELLO, BALKIN and AUSTIN, JJ., concur.
