A Stitch In Time (sort of)

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

I have to show you an article I just came across in North Jersey news (northjersey.com) about what happens if you don't do your homework, or take care of a problem in it's right time (depends which side of the fence your on).

Read here about litigation and $62,000 of cleanup costs. In short, A couple bought a house in Ringwood (a borough in Passaic County), and found they had a leak in the underground tank. To quote from the story there, "For other prospective buyers, LaCour says, a soil test is the No. 1 thing to do where there's an underground oil tank". That says it all.

sometimes insurance covers that stuff

Nowadays that isn't true at all. And for a new home owner, it's impossible to find oil tank insurance. No company will even give you a policy without an inspection.

After hurricane Sandy it seems clear to me that you can't count on insurance no matter how great a policy you think you have. It makes sense as well that you wouldn't get covered without an inspection. It seems to me that the cost of inspection is well worth the headache, time and money it can save you in the future.
