Homeowner's insurance vent
We are very excited to be buying a home that was built in 1758. :) It's beautiful, well cared for, has had some tasteful updates but very much retains its original detail and charm.
Talking to insurance companies about policies is making my blood boil. Two insurers have told me that they would not write a policy unless "the house has been ripped down to its foundation" or "all the walls have been ripped out and all wiring/plumbing replaced in the last 30 years". And they say this with great disdain, like 1980's engineering is the only way to go.
I want to reach through the phone and pop them in the nose.
That is all. :)
