Sinkholes- Are you covered?

Mar 25, 2013
The answer is, unfortunately, "Probably Not"...and the results can be devastating.

The most common homeowner insurance policies specifically exclude coverage for "Earth Movement" which includes:
a. Earthquake, including land shock waves or tremors before, during or after a volcanic eruption;
b. Landslide, mudslide or mudflow;
c. Subsidence or sinkhole; or
d. Any other earth movement including earth sinking, rising or shifting

If you think that you dont need coverage for Sinkhole here in Massachusetts, it would be wise to think again. Massachusetts has already suffered Sinkholes!
