However, upon a conversation with the insurance company, they said they would not write a policy for a roof that was of older age, and any signs of curling would cause the roof to be "poor" condition even though appraisal said "average" condition and inspector did not state roof was major immediate concern (so I never asked seller to repair).<br/>What would I do in this situation, as I was never told to consider this by any of the people representing me? Am i expected to repair a roof on a house that I did not even close on yet, a house that has not been signed over to me? if I were to make a repair, and I lost the house for whatever reason, did I just give the seller or future buyer a new roof for free? I'm at a&nbsp;loss for next steps on how to handle this as I obviously cannot close without a homeowners policy, but cant seem to get one.<br \><br \>3 replies Wed, 24 Apr 2013 18:25:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Insurance-Company-Won%27t-Write-Policy-due-to-Roof/489401/ 2013-04-24T18:25:00Z When purchasing a property with Cash what kind of fees should I still expect to pay? http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-purchasing-a-property-with-Cash-what-kind-of-fees-should-I-still-expect-to-pay/486576/ Heard about "closing costs" but I believe those costs are associated with a loan. As I plan to purchase a property with cash, I'm hoping to understand what are all the various fees I should expect to pay. &nbsp;<br \><br \>3 replies Sat, 06 Apr 2013 00:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/When-purchasing-a-property-with-Cash-what-kind-of-fees-should-I-still-expect-to-pay/486576/ 2013-04-06T00:47:00Z First steps http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/First-steps/334043/ I'm looking for buying a townhome in the East Windsor area.

I'm looking at a home that was purchased for 450m in 2006 and now a asking price of 325m. The taxes are 8990 a year. over $700 a month, half of the <a href="http://www.zillow.com/mortgage/">mortgage</a> payment. The assesment has to be two high. Is it possible to talk to an assesor to lower the taxes prior to purchasing? I don't want to gamble getting it lowered post purchase.<br \><br \>5 replies Fri, 15 Jan 2010 20:47:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/Is-it-possible-to-discuss-lowering-property-taxes-on-a-home-before-purchasing-it/315202/ 2010-01-15T20:47:00Z
