Yes, If your plan embodies that kind of coverage. If personal property is located on the premises, then the insurance should cover it, regardless of who it belongs to (within reason). However, it is difficult to prove exactly what a homeowner had or did not have on their property at any given time. With that being said, insuarnce companies seem to be very cautious when accepting liability. It is often not worth claiming such a loss, unleess it is very significant, and is typical for a home to have (like a jewelry box). Often, homeowners will not report losses unless they are very significant, due to the deductable they may have to pay and/or the risk of their insurance premium increasing from their claim. **I am not an expert by any means, so calling the insurance company that holds the policy will provide you with an accurate explanation.

No. Your Homeowners insurance is "Property" insurance. It covers property damages caused by certain covered Perils such as Fire, Wind, Hail, Lightning, Fire etc. You will not find coverage on your Home Insurance Policy for death or related expenses.

No. Automobile-related occurrences are not covered under homeowners insurance. In fact, they are expressly excluded.

Home Invasion and Homeowners InsuranceThat all depends. What did they steal? Is it covered under your homeowners Policy? If the stolen property is listed as covered under your homeowners Insurance then you should file a claim for the stolen property. If the door or window was kicked in or damaged then you can file a claim for cost of repairs.There is no coverage specific to a home invasion on your homeowners policy so there is no pay out for "home invasion" in and of itself.If you were injured firing the home invasion you will need to look to your medical insurance to cover the costs of related health care.

Typically, homeowners insurance expressly excludes auto-related losses. Therefore, the auto comprehensive coverage should apply.

A storm damages your fence. Wind-related damage to a fence or another insured structure on your property is typically covered by homeowners insurance whether it's the result of a tornado or just a fierce storm. Once it's safe to go outside, you should take photos of your damaged fence.

Only if you have added and paid an additional premium for the Earthquake coverage endorsement.Adding earthquake insurance to your homeowner's policy is typically optional and can often be quite costly. As a result, only about 12% of California homeowners have earthquake insurance according to the California Earthquake Authority (CEA) . For more information, visit the Related Link below.

You will need to refer to your Home insurance policy language. Alternatively you can ask your Insurance Agent or company representative. Most Home Insurance Policies these days contain specific language that excludes coverage for Asbestos and Asbestos related claims.

There are a number of insurance companies that provide coverage for farm operations and related equipment. This type of coverage is usually called 'farmowners insurance'. In most instances, a farm insurance policy provides protection for a home and personal property with coverage options similar to those offered in traditional homeowners insurance policies. Umbrella options vary, so make sure you inquire with your agent about specific coverage.

Homeowners Insurance is specific to the property of the named insured and sometimes, certain related liabilities of the named insured. The property of others is not covered.Nobody is liable for an act of nature, including natural falling objects.Your sister would have to look to her own chosen comprehensive auto insurance policy for an automotive loss.AnswerI don't believe the homeowners insurance would pay for the damage to the car unless some form of negligence can be established in relation to the tree. For example if it was very rotted and as a result fell on the car negligence might be established as a failure to maintain, but in a loss from a storm peril the coverage for the car would fall on the owner. In regards to the tree I have seen some homeowners policies that pay for removal of the fallen tree, but this is usually when the tree has damaged the dwelling.

No. that's what Auto Insurance is for. Home insurance covers damage to your home from wind, hail, fire, lightning etc. Likewise, your auto insurance, comprehensive coverage would repair wind, fire, hail and lightning related damage to your vehicle.

Most homeowners insurance does not increase rates due to claims. However, claims do determine whether or not a company continues to renew your policy. Especially now, if you are cancelled it is much harder to get home insurance.

if that person is related to you - no they are not covered - they are actually an insured - and insureds can't file injury claims - it is specifically excluded

It all depends on your particular coverage on your home owner's insurance. In my situation, my pet was covered on my homeowner's insurance. Therefore, anything related to your pet in relation to your home, especially if your pet cannot temporarily reside in your home with you should be covered. However, if your agent did not ask you what kind of pet you had when applying for the insurance, then you are probably not covered. Incidentally, my insuirance company (Liberty Mutual) will not cover what they consider to be aggressive dogs and was a condition of coverage.

Water damage caused by failure in plumbing is usually covered by homeowners insurance if certain conditions are met. Homeowners policies sometimes specifically prohibit long-term plumbing leaks which the homeowner must have been knowledge of, but have done nothing about. One of the major types of loss claims is plumbing-related. These can range from minor leaks to major flooding of the house, caused by a plumbing, usually hot water line & break. Fortunately, homeowners insurance covers plumbing line leaks, provided that the owner notifies the insurer in due course. For more information visit at: alliedallcityinc.com

I'm assuming you have homeowners insurance. You should contact your agent or the policy services dept. of your insuring company and discuss this with them, there may not be coverage under your liability portion of your homeowners policy to cover him, and you may want to add an endorsement. Your state insurance department is your best resource for insurance-related questions and concerns. Find information on insurance companies and agents, rate quotes and comparisons, insurance buying tips, claims filing information and much more!

Home policies include this coverage. These are necessary repairs for a large or total loss. I never have known for this to be excluded.

NO, Your homeowners or renters policy will not provide coverage for hired workers or contracted movers. It is the responsibility of the Employer to provide coverage for work related injuries of it's employees, not the customer.

Typically No on most policy types. This is usually considered normal expected wear and tear. It can also be looked at lack of maintenance issue. This is why insurers encourage homeowners to keep vegetation trimmed back far enough so as to prevent damage to the property. Look to your home insurance for the list of covered perils, Typically, fire, wind, hail etc. Their are some newpolicy offerings in the market place that are offering coverage for losses that accumulate over an extended time period. Home Insurance does not generally cover maintenance and upkeep related issues.
