OK, half the houses we touch areover 40 yrs old, and probably 20%+ are60+ and a few are " '20’s " houses. I am having trouble getting insurance through my agent (Nationwide agent, but who uses other companies when need be).
We are not talking about war zones, not falling down huts. In fact, our own home was built in 1920, the one next door ( 5 apts now) in 1923, and one we took “subj to” last week, in 1925. All in great shape, updated, (though in many cases we records of updates may not be available), and HAVING WITHSTOOD the dreaded hurricanes - by cracky!
Anybody have an insurance company to recommend checking into who is not loathe to insure properties that were built more than 40 yrs ago?
Wld appreciate the lead.
