Some Houses Cannot Be Insured

There are specific components of a house that are important to inspect, because insurance companies will not supply coverage if certain features are present. It is difficult to obtain insurance if the house you are buying contains less than 100 Amp hydro service, has fuses and not breakers in the panel box, knob & tube wiring, galvanized plumbing, an old furnace or a roof that is in poor condition. Aluminum wiring may require a safety certificate from a licensed electrician.
