I am in the market to buy another house, one I looked at had the oil tank outside.
I was a bit uncomfortable with that since it was not covered, but I also thought it has been out here since the house was built so how bad can it be.
Does anyone know what the regulations are pertaining to oil tanks being outside?
I don't know if the Bank would say it has to be addressed, before or after the sale.
The tank is is otherwise good shape, it is on a concrete slab, and the oil lines are above the tank.
The tank is also a 1/4 full and the heating system is 4 years old, so I would think they put anti gel in the oil tank to avoid gelling.
Now this is not a house I must buy, for what I am approved for anything I buy would need cosmetics like this one.
The house is in a nice area has a lot of new features so if I look past the oil tank and the fact it needs a good cleaning and some paint, it's not a bad house. Thanks
