Johnson City, Tennessee • Southside Neighborhood Organization
I have been in the neighborhood a year now and I just got a notice from my homeowners insurance that they were cancelling my policy because I live in a historic house. I am at 710 W. Maple and the house is in good condition and the same period as I would imagine most of the houses in the neighborhood (1930's). There is nothing particularly special about the house but the underwriter apparently has issues with the "Tree Streets Historic District" Plaque on my front porch. It seems like i will be able to work this out with the insurance agent, I just need to clarify some issues.
What (if any) are the restrictions placed on the property particlulary in the case where the structure would have to be replaced (which is the underwriter's concern)?
Are there published guidelines or rules for the Tree Streets Historic District?
Many thanks for your input
