TRY THIS with public humiliation and a atty + the local board of realtors.
From time to time send them a email (anonymous) asking questions see if they answer the email give them 2 times and if not fire them the listing contract says they will use due diligence in finding a buyer. They are NOT working for you! Hire someone who will work for the commission. No reason to pay for something you are not getting. ... more

400's. We are in a town house development. The estimate you have for our is low 200's. It seems crazy! Stinks because some banks use this a bit for refinancing purposes. Thoughts?

There are so many things that will affect the cost of your insurance. The size and location of the house are big. Your credit score will be looked at closely. Beyond those two major things there are a ton of other things that will be evaluated when you get insurance. I would suggest talking to your current insurance company to see if there is any way you can bundle your car insurance to your home. I know a lot of people save money that way, you might be able to bundle other types of insurance too. You never know if you don't ask.

It's a lot easier if you just let seller's title insurance company take care the problem. They must clear the title for the escrow to close. At the closing, you can purchase a good title insurance policy that will cover all of possible title problems for the new owner.

If you want to find out the title chain yourself, you can get an online title report within few minutes on website such as http://www.nextace.com (title record search) or http://www.searchq.com (free property report).

I live right down the street in Tyngsboro and I have a septic system from 1982. The systems are very simple and most of the time, if they pass Title V, they should be fine. I would say that if you are selling the house, the Title V should be more than enough to satisfy any potential buyer. If YOU are the potential buyer and have concerns, you can write an offer (or I can write it for you ;-) that is contingent on a more thorough inspection. You can even put in a request that the seller pay for the additional inspection. It shouldn't be too expensive. Generally they introduce a GPS tracker into the system somewhere and follow it to make sure everything is flowing smoothly.

Please contact me anytime if I can be of any assistance! :-)

Eunice- With little inventory sellers are not as willing to rent as they are to sell. Have you spoken with a good lender to see if you can afford to buy instead of selling? Renting is throwing money out the window. I be glad to sit down with you and help figure out if you can buy.

Title V is a state law, but towns are granted the ability to mandate more strict rules. For new construction, inspections and certificates of compliance are granted by the governing Board of Health.. For re-sales, state licensed inspectors provide the inspections and pass/fail reports. Closing attorneys assure the certifications have, in fact, been done. Kevin M 978-407-4807 ... more

Roger Martin answered:
Its good that your evaluating options when shopping for Home Insurance, but consider more of what you don't see verses what you do see for example "Exclusions". Many homeowners evaluate their options based on comparing what they do see as "Policy Coverage", placing them side by side. Although one policy may appear to be less expensive than the other it may have something to do with Policy Exclusion like Flood Insurance, Home-office related, Business related, Sewer back-up, Pool etc..

Ask the prospective insurance agent to list out for you the exclusion within the policy and you maybe surprised by the response. The Agent may forward you a packet containing exclusions, if your great with reading and understanding legal jargon fantastic. However if your uncomfortable with reviewing the exclusion within the policy you may wish to seek a legal review or work with public adjuster to make sure that you have an expert reviewing the complicated language of your insurance policy

Hope this was helpful

Heath Coker answered:
If you are not going to have your own inspection done, you could have more problems.
However, a home inspector and getting terminix back out there to look for more bugs is a better hedge against future problems.
The existing treatment contract may be assumable, too.
