The seller of this house is debating the fact that the house was built in the 1980’s and that his “electrician friend” told him that there were no electrical panel clearance requirements in the code back then.
I found in the NEC 110.26 that there were requirements for workspace clearances all the way back to 1965, the dimensions have changes, but the requirement has been there for decades.
Look at the picture and please let me know your thoughts. The tub platform extends to the wall the the panel is on. I had to stand on it to remove the panel cover.
