Robert, extremely pleased you are looking forward to replies. Perhaps you will read and understand this better than your other posts on the MB.
You should take a long, long, long working vacation to build your knowledge base about home inspecting, then selectively come back and contribute. If you never do so again, it will not be a loss.
Nowhere did the OP mention a OCPD. He did mention illegal tap and if it is off of the main lugs, IT IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN.
Of course the OP did not provide enough information, or even any pics, so assumptions on just about everything, but still:roll: piss poor advice. If you are this obtuse and unobservant on the MB…:roll:
“So, I am working on my report from my inspection last night. Moments ago I remembered something, but it didn’t occur to me while onsite. At the main electrical service outside there was an outlet under the panel. I was focused on the stuff inside the panel and this was sort of a peripheral observation. I have an old inspection report from 2015 where the previous inspector indicated there were illegal taps and referred to this outlet. I did not test the outlet to see if it still is receiving power or not. This is an important thing to miss. I’m not sure what to do. Do I talk to the client or realtor about coming back to quickly check this item? Or should I write it up? And if I should just write it up, does anybody have any suggestions of how to do this eloquently?
thanks a bunch.”
