Well FH and I are one step closer to owning our first house, as we got our inspection today. It went pretty well. The house is a foreclosure but in decent shape. They forgot to turn on the water and gas but both were pretty easy fixes from inside the house.
Structurally the house looks really good. He couldn’t really find any problems with the foundation, which is good for a century old home.
I guess the only issues he found was that there is no heating vents upstairs but heat does rise, so no real big deal right now. Easy fix down the road since the master bedroom is downstairs. Whole house air doesn’t work. Not a big thing, just something to fix later down the road. The real problem is that there is knob and tube wiring that is active in the attic. We have no idea what it is hooked up to. All the other electric is current and updated. It’s just two lines in the attic.
SO now we have to find a homeowner’s policy that will allow this (or not ask us about it) in order to go ahead and get the house. We still love the house and know all the problems that can be fixed, by my FH or his dad or someone they know. I am just worried about finding insurance. Anyone else gone through this? Did your insurance company ask about knob and tube?
