House is in Tucson, AZ.
It was noted by HI that these wires in the panel were not appropriately abandoned. Buyer asked that the wires be properly abandoned & brought up to code. Subsequently, this note was found attached to the wires in question.
Seller says they were told by the electrician that came to property that this is all that was necessary.
Buyer is concerned that a note claiming that wires are dead does not constitute “properly abandoned to meet code”.
I represent the buyer, and want to advise them correctly. HI was shown the new picture and said, “I find it hard to believe that an electrician would stick a scrap of paper on the wire rather than cap it.” He stands by his assessment that this is improperly abandoned.
We are at an impasse, with sellers saying our HI is full of — umm…bananas.
So is this good enough? Is it worth calling in an electrician of our own?
