Does homeowners insurance cover damage from leaking skylight?

Generally an issue like this is not a covered loss on a homeowners insurance. The reason for this is that it is a maintenance issue that should have been fixed by the homeowner before damage occurred. Now if a storm occurred and a tree branch broke the skylight and then because of the storm rain came into the home. In the second case the cause was windstorm. Windstorm is a covered cause on a homeowners policy and therefore not only will the skylight be fixed but also the damage caused by the water coming into the home and whatever damage was caused by this. Most issues that are covered under a homeowners policy and ones that are "sudden and accidental". A lack of maintenance type of damage is usually something that happens over a period of time.

Will your homeowners insurance cover your septic pipe?

A homeowners policy will cover damage done by a covered cause. It does not cover maintenance as the homeowner is responsible for maintaining the home. Septic pipe damage is almost always the result of lack of maintenance. I cannot think of any way that septic pipe would be damaged by a covered cause. Perhaps if a storm blew down trees and the falling over of the trees caused the uprooting of parts of the septic pipe. This would be a covered cause.

Who is liable in state of Virginia if a neighbor's tree fell on my property?

Sorry but your homeowners policy will most likely have to pay for the damages on your property. I assume that the tree fell due to a storm and that it was a live tree when it fell. This is an act of God and is not covered unless it was caused by your neighbor's negligence. If it was a dead tree that you had notified your neighbor needed to be removed and he didn't do it or if it was obviously dead and in his front yard where he had to see it every day he may have been negligent and his policy or he personally may have to pay. Otherwise your policy will pay for your damage and his policy will pay for damage on his property.
