built in 1895. My husband agrees it needs to
be inspected for foundation electric heating
plumbing. But I have another concern lead
paint. The house has so many coats of paint
the doors won't close properly and it has alot of windows and all the floors are
painted. My husband doesn't feel it's a major
concern. Can anyone give us some feedbacon the subject. gt
Often as part of the home inspection, an assesment of lead paint abatement/removal in the home is required. I believe some cities require that any lead paint be addressed before a certificate of occupancy can be issued. Just for your own benefit, ask your town's building inspector. The lead paint could be another card for you to play in the negotiation of the price of the home since it is a hazard that will have to be dealt with as the new home owner which will cost money and time.
