I recently stayed at out of town motel where my nephew was having a football tournament. I was informed by coach that he kicked rock and broke glass door in motel and mgr. of hotel claimed they had $1000 deductible for these damages and the est. would be around $500. There were no adults present when the damage occured but two other children claimed my nephew did the damage. Would my homeowners cover this damage? thanks.

Someones might. Does your nephew live with you? Whomever he lives with do they have either a homeowners or renters policy? How old is the boy? Did he do it on purpose, like in anger or was it an accident? What state are you in?

Why should you pay for the damages? Are you the legal guardian of the child? If so, I guess, only in that case the claim could be filed under your homeowners policy.
