In my previous entries we talked about how look, the noise in the neighborhood, the maintenance, amenities, and records of the building should be considered whe you are buying real estate in New York, specifically with "brownstone" buildings. Now, let's see why inspection and insurance are two important factors when investing.6. Perform a Brownstone Specific Inspection
Unlike many homes, brownstones are known to have distinct problems such as termites as well as lead paint. Before you finalize the sale of the building, it is advisable that ensure that it passes evaluation. Ensure that it is licensed by a certified inspector which with it comes an inspection report. This shows that the building remains in good condition structurally.
During the examination, the inspector will check to see that the beams of the building are undamaged, there is an appropriate drain system which the boiler and the heater are updated. A building that has a gas boiler as opposed to an oil boiler. This is since a gas boiler is less expensive, much safer and cleaner hence a perfect choice. They will also inspect to see that the roofing system and floors are undamaged and not drooping. If they are, repair works will be advised right away.

7. Insurance coverage
Unlike the majority of buildings, insurer do not cover the repair expenses of the buildings initial functions in case of damage after storms or other natural catastrophes. These include; crown molding. Nevertheless, there are policies that cover such functions however they are pricey, up to 40% more.
