Homeowners Insurance and Knob-and-Tube Wiring...
We had the home inspection on the 1920 "Dutch Colonial Revival" that we are in the process of purchasing.
The Inspector had a lot of concerns about the knob and tube wiring in the house. Some, but not all of the electric is updated. He recommended that we (or preferably the seller) have the wiring inspected and safety tested by an licensed electrician before we take possession of the house.
He mentioned that it might be tough to get a homeowners policy with the electric in it's current state. Has anyone else had difficulty getting an insurance policy for their home because of knob-and-tube?
