house insurance company wants to inspect my house!


like i said, i went with a different provider. easy. been with them ever since and they insure more for less and have good reputation. it is group insurance though, so maybe that has something to do with it?

if i were looking for new insurance provider now (which i am not) i would just say my house is 100+ years old, here is a description of it. i took pictures of my contents and video of my house, but you can not have these because it is private. will you require an inspection yes or no? if yes, then come on over but if you intend to give me a long list of repairs don't bother wasting your time. if no, what are you insuring me for and how much will it cost me? that's it. there's no reason it needs to be more complicated than that for simple situation.

Taking pictures and video of your house and contents is always a good idea for insurance purposes.

Be sure to keep copies of them off premises in the event your house is completely destroyed by fire.

Then you can prove the existence of your personal effects and other things for insurance reimbursement.

Not necessarily, this just proves those items were in the house when the video was shot.
