Even though all homes are required to be thoroughly checked out by a licensed inspector before move-in, you should employ the do-it-yourself method of following up the official inspection with one of your own because it could bring you lower homeowners insurance quotes.

According to an article recently published on, “It’s imperative that you conduct a home inspection before purchasing the house,” states the article, ‘Inspect the Unexpected: Take Control of Your Homeowners Insurance.’ “Although the home must be inspected by a licensed residential inspector, you should inspect the property yourself beforehand to look for any problems or issues. If it’s a resale house that is older than 20 years, chances are you will find a handful of issues.”


Prudential Reveals UK Workers In State Of Pension Inertia

New research from Prudential shows that nearly a third (30%) of Britain’s 8.8 million active occupational pension scheme members pay no attention to how their retirement savings are invested and 29% – more than 2.5 million scheme members – have never reviewed how their chosen pension fund is performing.

The pension provider’s study also shows that 48% of workers aged 25+ have their money invested in the ‘default’ fund of their company pension scheme.

Pension savers are failing to take an active role in managing their assets to produce the best possible retirement income. Around 29% admit they have never reviewed the progress of their selected pension funds.

Prudential warns that workers who do not regularly review the progress of their pension fund to deliver asset growth, or simply select the default fund offered by their employer without studying any other options available to them or seeking advice, could then risk limiting the value of their pension pot at retirement.

Andy Brown, director of investment funds at Prudential, said: “It’s worrying that so many people who pay into a company pension scheme appear to be in this state of inertia and aren’t taking an active role in the management of their pension savings.
