Foundation and Structural Issues: Be sure to hire a licensed structural engineer.
Electrical & Plumbing Issues: Updating these systems can be costly. Keeping the original knob-and-tube wiring or original cast-iron pipes can be a serious safety hazard.
Hazardous Materials: Lead is commonly found in paint applied before 1978 and plumbing before 1985. Asbestos before 1980.
Outdated Heating and Cooling Systems: Older homes had oil, coal or wood heating systems and retrofitted. It’s important to understand your system.
Termite and Bugs: Bugs can be a major issue. The older the home the longer it has been exposed to the chance of infestations.
