Client is considering the purchase of a home for conversion to a duplex. There is a single service panel in the basement serving the entire home currently.
Is it required by NEC or IRC to have access to a breaker panel within each unit that serves that unit? I thought that this had been discussed elsewhere on the board and I have tried searching the old IRC on CD and this Board but can't seem to find that discussion.
The panel will likely have to be replaced anyway, and I know to check with the local Code Official (I have a call in) but I am not optimistic that I will get a timely response, so all help is deeply appreciated here.
