Please show me the OBBS opinion to back your ‘claim’.
I get my opinions from my state not from Not Chuck. I share these rules so that those who choose to follow them will be able to legally continue to operate their home inspection business.If you choose not to follow the information that I share then so be it.
It is not “makes no representation” it is “includes any ascertainment of compliance”.
Once a building (home) receives a C of O it becomes an existing building. Chapter 34 applies.
The OBBS has the ultimate say on buildings in Ohio. R.C. 4764 limits what a home inspection is. The inside of an electrical panel is excluded from a home inspection (in Ohio).
Your state allows you to comment on the inside. Ohio doesn’t.
Here is the OAC powers of the OBBS. Show me where they gave home inspectors the power that you continue to ‘claim’ they have to inspect the inside of an electrical panel. See link.
101.2 Scope. The provisions of the “Ohio Building Code”, the “Ohio Mechanical Code”, and the “Ohio Plumbing Code” shall apply to the construction, alteration, movement, enlargement, replacement, repair, equipment, use and occupancy, location, maintenance, removal and demolition of every building or structure or any appurtenances connected or attached to such buildings or structures.
You know what assume means.
