First-time home buyer here. Just got my 4-point inspection (for homeowners insurance) completed and only had a couple of items that the inspector recommended taking action on. Most were very minor and easy to understand. There’s only one, regarding electrical, that I don’t have the knowledge or experience to evaluate. Would you offer your opinion on the seriousness of this issue and whether you think a fix would be costly or labor intensive? Feel free to dumb it down. I literally have no idea what the comments mean.
Don’t worry, I will be calling in a licensed electrician. And, I would have followed up with the inspector directly, but I won’t be able to speak directly with him for a few days, so thought I’d see what the experts on here have to say. Here’s the relevant section of the report… (the first one is an easy fix, it sounds like, not sure about the second one)
In case it’s helpful: house is in Florida and was built in early 60s. Roof replaced, plumbing redone, electrical done and HVAC installed 2013-2014. There were no issues with the roof, plumbing or HVAC.
- ELECTRICAL: Update panel legend: several breakers are not labeled in subpanel. Main panel legend needs updating. Recommendation: Update panel legends
- SUB PANEL: Neutral and ground conductors were observed on the same bus at subpanel. Recommendation: Contact a qualified professional (image here: https://i.imgur.com/72FBDvK.png)
