Is there a way to find out if someone has property and/or homeowners insurance and how long they have had it?
We were renting a house, 100+ acres of land, 2 sheds and a tractor barn were all included. With permission from the property owner we emptied out and cleaned up the tractor barn to start a vintage car and bike service and maintainence shop. She even helped supply some materials. We were fully stocked with tools and machinery when the barn caught fire and burnt to the ground in less than ten minutes.
The cause could not be determined due to the intensity of the fire, however, faulty electrical wire was the most likely cause. The owner claimed not to have “a lick of insurance” now we have found out from an not so reliable source not only was she insured, but she collected on the barn.
