Did you know? A 4-point inspection is an examination of the current condition of a house or condominium, reviewing four major systems: roofing, electrical, plumbing and HVAC.
This specific inspection is requested by homeowners’ insurance companies before someone can renew or be eligible for their desired coverage plan. More recently, insurance companies have been hesitant with providing coverage to homes on the real estate market over 20 years old due to their increased liability.
For example, someone seeking coverage for a home that is 30 years old may have electrical or HVAC system issues that could arise within the next few years. Insured homeowners will likely seek reimbursement for such issues, costing insurers more in the long run. Insurance providers utilize the results of this exam to have a clear picture of the financial risk being taken on with the insured property.
