Questions asked by Insurance Companies

Real Estate Agent with Lethbridge Real

If you are buying a house in Lethbridge and area, your insurance company will have many questions about the house, and the condition.  It is very difficult/ impossible/expensive to get insurance on a home with knob and tube wiring, a 60 amp panel, gravity furnace, and lead pipes. So those are things that you need to consider carefully when you are buying.  When you are getting your insurance, here are a few questions the insurance company might ask you.

1.  ROOF: How old is the roof?

2.  HOT WATER TANK:  How old is it? Is it a standard tank or hot water on demand?

3.  FURNACE: How old is it? Is it natural gas? 

4.  WIRING/ ELECTRICAL:  Is is copper wiring?  Is it 100amps?

5.  SUMP PUMP:  Is there a sump pump?  How old is it?  Is there a battery back up or alarm?

6.  BACK FLOW VALVE: Is there a back flow valve? How old is it?


When you have your home inspection done, it's a good idea to ask the Lethbridge Home Inspector for the answers to these questions, and of course get your LETHBRIDGE REALTOR® to ask the seller's representative.
