AnswerIt may vary state to state but generally NO insurance will not cover the leaking pipe but it will cover the cost to get to it and repair the damage done to get to it as well as cover the damage done from the leak. You are on your own with the cost of the plumber. Best bet is to read your policy on exclusions. If it is not excluded, it's covered.

It just depends on why your siding is leaking. If it's leaking as the result of a covered peril, fire, wind or hail damage, a tree fell on it, then it would be covered subject to your deductible. If the siding is just old, worn out or of poor workmanship then it is not covered, it would be an owners maintenance issue.

Will homeowners insurance cover the loss of personal property if you're behind on your mortgage and you have a compound loan?

Most likely it will depending on what the mortgage company's policy is. The insurance policy is purchased at one time during the year, therefore it will be in place even though you are behind in mortgage payments. If your mortgage payment includes a prorated portion of the annual insurance policy and you are behind in payments at the time rewal of the policy comes up, the mortgage company will likely pay for the policy using the accumulated reserves from the past months and paying the remaining amount for you. The bank will simply charge you later when you catch up on payments or add it to the amount due in a foreclosure action. The bank protects its own interests this way too. But you should see if your mortgage bank has a policy of paying only that portion of the premium that protects the house and land and not the contents. Also check with the homeowners' insurance company and read your policy.

Will mortgage insurance automatically be canceled if the property goes through foreclosure Can the insurance company make you continue to pay or come after you for money after foreclosure?

I believe this question deals with Mortgage Insurance, not homeowners insurance. After foreclosure the lender will file a claim with the mortgage insurer. The claim is paid and since the mortgage is no longer in force the policy is void and no further claims can be made. Since the policy is no longer in force there are no premiums to be paid. The insurance company will not come after you unless they discover that you obtained the mortgage (thus the insurance also) by fraudulent means. If that is the case they will come after you. Also, any losses that the lender incurred beyond what the insurance paid are still collectible. It will be reported to the credit agencies and they will continue to try to collect from you. Homeowners insurance is one of the peripheral issues that families facing foreclosure must deal with. While it is possible that the county can take the home through a different type of foreclosure for unpaid property taxes, and the mortgage company will be pursuing a lawsuit for the defaulted mortgage contract, there is little the homeowners insurance company will do upon nonpayment. However, this does not mean that property owners have nothing to worry about. There are two most likely scenarios when homeowners begin missing their mortgage payments, and what happens with the insurance will relate to how the premiums are paid. The issue may be handled differently depending on if the owners pay the insurance on their own or if it is paid monthly through the escrow on the mortgage. Most homeowners, though, escrow their property taxes and insurance through their monthly mortgage payment. Typically, when payments are missed on an insurance policy, the coverage will continue for a period of months. If something happens to the house, the owners will be covered by their policy, although the amount they have fallen behind will be deducted from total awarded to them for the accident. However, if numerous payments are missed for longer than just a few months, the policy will lapse and the owners will no longer have any coverage. What may happen at this point is the mortgage company will buy its own homeowners insurance for the house, and they will add the monthly premiums to the amount owed on the loan. If the homeowners want to get back on track with the mortgage, they will have to pay back this extra amount for the forced insurance. Lenders will also not shop around for the best rates, so the monthly cost for the policy may be quite a bit more expensive than the owners were used to. Of course, this should not be an issue at all if the homeowners pay the insurance through their monthly payment to the lender. The bank will keep paying the taxes and insurance to make sure the policy does not lapse, while adding the amount of these missed payments to the total needed to reinstate the loan. Any insurance payments the lender makes will be included in the payoff and foreclosure judgment.

Does homeowners insurance cover cracked chimney liners?

This is a good question and it very difficult to give you concise answer without knowing the specifics behind your policy. There are insurance carriers that offer options to insurance failure that are mechanical in nature. It is also important to note how the liner became cracked and under what circumstances to find out if you are covered. A good place to start is by reading your policy to make sure of what coverages you have and then call your agent for further interpretation.
