  • could make the gameroom nicer
  • kitchen decent for rental; would want to re-update if buying for resale
    there is sloping in the kitchen due to mine subsidence. sounds like a big deal but really might not be plus it’s old news, especially it being DEP-insured; see this section below for simple info on it.

*might be able to get away with a 4th BR since the basement is partially above ground w/windows:
(b) Apartment units that are located partially below ground level with windows that are at least as large as other windows in the building are permitted.


-property IS insured for this yet no claim has ever put in because the sloping has not moved / has ceased when owner-occupants purchased it over 8 years ago; so yes it is likely insurable w/the same coverage; also paragraph #2 here. (& since no further damage in ownership, last sentence here.)

-it’s $105/year for $195k of coverage

-PA is one of the 3 states that offers (& encourages!!) Mine Subsidence Insurance with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP): http://www.depgis.state.pa.us/pamsi/index.html

Examples of what DEP repairs; this is nowhere near any of those!
