Knob and Tube and Insurance
When I setup the insurance for the house, I told them there was no visible knob and tube, because that was what I was told by the inspector.
Now that I am in the house, I called in an electrician, because I wanted to get some quotes on having ungrounded plugs, switched to three prong grounded plugs. Anyways the electrician told me that basically almost every outlet was knob and tube, and he was going to work on quote to replace it.
My question is, what should I do now that I know that most of the house is knob and tube, should I phone up the insurance people and tell them this ?
If there were some kinda of electrical related insurance claim, would it be voided by the fact that I have knob and tube wire ? Should I just be quiet for now ?
I am going to get replaced, because I need to do it eventually, but was just curious on how quickly I should do that, and whether I should keep the insurance people in the loop.
Any thoughts ?
