I’m contemplating a move, and this page – posted on a friend’s FB wall – was timely. (I tend to be one of those people whose enthusiasm trumps hard questions.) There isn’t much revelatory here, but it’s a worthwhile read regardless.
10. Check about your insurance premium early
Find an insurance agent right away and if possible, check what it will cost to obtain insurance as soon as you sign your agreement and before you waive any conditions. An insurance agent can check the history of claims in the neighbourhood and can let you know about claims for sewage back-ups or vandalism. This is important information that any buyer should have before deciding to waive their conditions and complete the deal.
