Does home insurance cover a well on the property?
My family and I rely on a well for most of our fresh water. Will our insurance help us out if the well stops working?
Yes, as long as the cause of the well damage or failure is one of the covered perils on your insurance policy, such as a fire or windstorm. In most cases, a well is considered a separate structure on the property. This means it falls under “Coverage B,” or other structures coverage, on your home insurance policy.
However, you should be aware that home insurance does not cover a well if the damage or failure is a result of neglect or wear and tear.

Can my wife and I get a refund for gap insurance if we don't use it?
My wife got into an accident and her car was marked a total loss. Our insurance payout will cover what's left on our loan. We did purchase gap insurance from the dealership. Are we able to get a refund since we paid for it and never used it?
