Regarding insurance: I asked this question recently on our Facebook group. I was directed to speak to:
Johnston Meier Insurance Agencies Group
305-2748 Lougheed Hwy, Port Coquitlam BC V3B 6P2
Tel: 604-944-9577 ext.63344
She was excellent, and she was able to find me an insurer that didn’t require a survey (but I will need to get one in 5 years).
