Are Sinkholes Covered by Homeowners Insurance?
A sinkhole is a depression in the earth that happens naturally. It is usually caused by erosion and flooding, and many occur in central Florida. A sinkhole can cause the house to move or shift. Because it has such a huge effect on the home, it is a particularly expensive claim for insurance companies to handle. Many individuals are unaware that sinkholes are covered under homeowners insurance. There are, in fact, specific laws that address how insurance claims must handle sinkhole claims in Florida.
When the adjuster comes to assess the damage to the home, he or she may be looking for any reason to deny the claim because such claims are typically expensive. In fact, the insurance company may have an engineer come out to try to prove that it is not sinkhole damage.
