Got a call from a seller a while ago, who was angry because I didn’t point out a defect to him even though he took off work that day to be there for the inspection.
I explained the report is the client’s, and I can’t ethically discuss my findings with anyone other than the client without his permission.
As I thought about it though, it occured to me that this particular defect was a potential life safety issue (neutral and ground on same buss in sub-panel), and perhaps something like that should be brought to the Seller’s immediate attention.
I realize fire hazards, missing railings on 10 foot high decks, gas leaks, etc. should be brought to immeditate attention, but is the non-separation of the neutral and ground significant, or imminent enough?
Maybe this question should be in “Electrical Inspections”.
