I’m buying a home in Florida. The roof is past its lifespan…

Customer Question
I’m buying a home in...
I’m buying a home in Florida. The roof is past its lifespan of 20 years and is at 23.
It is shingles.
The insurance company won’t insure this because of this issue.Is there any seal or anything that can be used to extend the life and have it pass insurance?Were there any laws that passed recently where this changed to not be able to get insurance if the roof is past it’s ‘life span’?

I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. Are you asking if there is some law that would require the insurance company to offer you insurance on this home?

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
