Frequently Asked Questions
Insurance companies typically require older homes (mainly 25 years or older) to undergo a Four-Point Inspection prior to issuing Homeowners Insurance Policies. The common concern for the insurance company is that there may be conditions in an older home that could become a liability. Concerns that extend to the condition of the HVAC, electrical, plumbing systems, and roof. If these elements are in poor condition, need updating, or were improperly installed, they may fail and cause fire or water damage to the home.
The insurance company requires that a licensed professional prepares a report such as a Home Inspector.
Unfortunately, a Home Inspection report cannot be used as a substitute for a Four Point Inspection. Insurance companies require specific information and most companies use a specific report to be filled in regarding the HVAC, electrical, plumbing, and roof.
