Inspected a HUD home which has been purchased by the City and resold to qualifying single Mom. Found numerous shoddy workmanship on “rehabbed” home but my main concern is with the aluminum branch circuit wiring. I wrote this up as a concern and recommended copalum crimp connectors at outlets, switchs and junctions. City refuses to pay electrician for upgrade citing:
- Not necessary for insurability.
- Not required to be upgraded per NEC.
Is this correct? I do not have access to NEC but I intend to get it.
Any thoughts on how I can help this lady? Thanks
