Just do the inspection and note no access to the panel because of the pipe.

Thanks everyone. I saw this and had to post it. At least I'm training this Realtor a bit.

Well at least they asked first. They could have just blamed you for the sale falling through....

Found a water heater in front of a panel once. Both water lines ran in front of the breakers. Couldn't take the cover off if I had wanted to. And of course there is the leak thing...

There should be 1 square meter ( 3 Sq Ft)of clear space in front of the panel, at least in my neck of the woods.
