Yeah, I think it's actually really smart to do this kind of research ahead of time. It can be really difficult to find out all of this insurance information, and putting yourself in a time crunch by waiting until after you buy a house can make that even harder. You can avoid that problem by doing the exact research you're considering. Hopefully everything works out, and you find what you need.
I don't think I would let this stop me. I might try talking to the electric company to see exactly what is planned with it, but as long as it isn't a threat to the property, I don't see a very big problem here. I would definitely suggest doing a bit of research to help you have peace of mind, but that's about it. Good luck figuring this all out.
It's possible. I can do VA & FHA loans down to a 580 score in all 50 states but your credit score is only part of the equation.
