As an example, a Tucson home with a history of claim(s) in the CLUE report related to water damage may influence the insurance company not to insure the home for mold liability. How do you discover whether or not the home you are considering to purchase has a poor claims history that may affect your ability to insure? Get a CLUE Report!
