    Where Are Large Dangerous Sinkholes Common? I live right outside of chicago and i heard about the sinkhole in florida.
    i was wondering where are large home swallowing ones like that common?
    and how can you detect one before it takes your whole house down

    If You Have A Mortgage On Your House Is Sink Hole Insurance Mandatory? I’m in central Florida. I have contacted the mortgage company and either they do not know or they do not want me to know. I have yet to figure out which.

    • Curator says:

      In Florida, politicians have passed laws that say that sinkholes must be covered under a homeowners policy.

      If you are hell bent on not having sinkhole coverage, you’ll have to buy property insurance that does NOT include sinkhole coverage – like through Lloyds of London – and it’s going to cost you a hell of a lot more.

      I don’t believe the mortgage standards require sinkhole collapse as a peril. But the state of Florida requires insurance companies to include it.

  • Iddawg2469 says:

    I Noticed On My Last Statement For Homeowners? I reside in Central Florida. On my last statement for homeowners I noticed a deductible for sink holes. When did it go into effect. I have not seen any thing in the news about it.

    • Curator says:

      Most carriers have rolled deductibles for sinkholes onto the policy in the last 12 months. Florida has actually had more SINKHOLE claims than any other kind of damage including hurricanes in the past few years.
