I can appreciate what Joe is trying to do, but as an inspector, it is not my job to point out code violations.
The example is clearly a mess. Sorry, but you comment on what you saw in the context of whether evaluation is required by a licensed electrical contractor. Would any of us list every violation in a report, even if we knew it? I doubt it.
Cool photo, though.
I mean, what could you say?
"A bundle of electrical cables and splices was discovered in the attic of the dwelling. Cables and splices were not found in an approved electrical enclosure, or ANY enclosure, for that matter. Splicing methodology is questionable. Cables are not marked, nor are they properly secured. Inspector strongly recommends an evaluation by a licensed electrical contractor prior to closing, as applicability of local and national electrical codes may be in question. Repair or reconfigure as necessary."
Plain language message to my client? The job is an abomination, and someone needs to fix it...
