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 special issues such as termites as well as lead paint. Prior to you settle the sale of the building, it is a good idea that make sure that it passes inspection. Ensure that it is licensed by a licensed inspector and that with it comes an inspection report. This shows that the building is in good shape structurally.
Throughout the assessment, the inspector will examine to see that the beams of the building are undamaged, there is a proper drainage system which the boiler and the heating unit are updated. A building that has a gas boiler instead of an oil boiler. This is since a gas boiler is less expensive, more secure and cleaner hence a perfect option. They will also examine to see that the roof and floorings are intact and not sagging. If they are, repair works will be suggested right away.

Unlike a lot of buildings, insurer do not cover the remediation costs of the buildings original functions in case of damage after storms or other natural catastrophes. These include; crown molding. Nevertheless, there are policies that cover such features but they are costly, up to 40% more.
