The local assessor should have records of when the place was built, and any capital improvements done along the way that needed a building permit. Hot water tanks, boilers and air conditioning all have nameplates that show their age. Electrical panels have inspection dates. Get your paper and pencil, start looking around.

Even if the prior owner doesn't have the necessary documentation, she would most likely still have her check registers which would show the insurance agent to whom premiums were paid.

That agent could advise her, or you, who the insurance carrier was. Most likely her application for insurance included the data you need.

Good luck!

Normally the Ins company will come and look at the house. If you just bought it the paper work should be with the home inspector.

Get an inspection. Re: the age of heating system update. There should be a sticker on the unit from the company that did any work which has a date & signoff. Appliances should also have dates of manufacture on the.
