The problem with the alum. wire is that it expands and contracts more than other metals, after a while the places where it connects to different metals such as ( but not limited to ) switches and outlets.In time, during this process of expanding and contracting the connection become loose thus creating a fire hazard. How through arcing and heat.It should be replaced completely but there are some places that will allow you to use special connectors and install some new outlets and switches.I personally wouldn't live there till the system was replaced completelyand inspected.There are reasons why many insurance companies won't insure them.-Joseph-
Before you walk, get an electrician to give you at least a quote of the cost you are facing. You can then negotiate that with the owner. Have him put the money in escrow and you get the work done within 6 months of buying the house.Call USAA and get your insurance quote too.Naima
Maybe you're right Trump. If we want to work on it, the easiest way to do to just not to disclose AL. I was wondering if anything we could do so not to take a chance. Anything happen to the house, it'll be the worse in life :-(
If seller really to lower the price, currently it's 270K. How much lower to make it worthwhile? We really like the house and wanting to try our best. The house is a duplex build in 1976.Thanks...
The seller should have an electrician upgrade the wiring, otherwise your loan will most likely not be approved. I would not recommend you taking on the expense, just in case your transaction does not close.
