Looking for a house and found a house (cape cod built in early 50's). It has oil heat...from my reading/research, if underground there are major issues re: insurance and liability. I imagine it would depend on alot of factors, but how much to convert to natural gas..what type of questions should I be asking the owner/REA? Right now, listing price is $475K and it's assessment value is high $390K...house needs other work also (landscaping, tile, basement unfinished)

Any other things I should be asking? Thank you.

If natural gas is already in the house, it's easy to convert to gas heat.

If not, I would pass on that house. Remember $4+ gasoline? Heating oil goes sky high too...
