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. Carry out a Brownstone Specific Inspection
Unlike many homes, brownstones are known to have unique issues such as termites as well as lead paint. Before you complete the sale of the building, it is suggested that make sure that it passes examination. Ensure that it is licensed by a certified inspector and that with it comes an assessment report. This reveals that the building is in good shape structurally.
Throughout the examination, the inspector will examine to see that the beams of the building are intact, there is a correct drainage system which the boiler and the heater are updated. A building that has a gas boiler instead of an oil boiler. This is since a gas boiler is cheaper, more secure and cleaner hence a perfect choice. They will likewise check to see that the roofing system and floors are intact and not sagging. If they are, repairs will be recommended immediately.

7. Insurance coverage
Unlike a lot of buildings, insurer do not cover the remediation costs of the buildings original features in case of destruction after storms or other natural catastrophes. These include; crown molding. Nevertheless, there are policies that cover such features but they are pricey, as much as 40% more.
