Knob & Tube Wiring - Cant Get Insurance

2 Replies

Hi all,

I am closing on a property in Cleveland, OH and I have hit a major roadblock. When trying to get insurance, I have been asked if the house has "knob and tube" wiring for the electrical system. The house is almost 100 years old and it does have some knob and tube wiring. When I tell the insurance company this, I am met a with a "Sorry, we dont insure that." Aside from paying to have the entire house re-wired, I dont see how to alleviate the issue.

Does anyone have any leads on a reputable insurance company who insures houses with knob and tube electrical systems?

If so, I'd REALLY appreciate the referral.
