Have you ever thought of the home inspection your home will have?
The inspection requires the inspector access all the areas of your home along with access to all the components like water heaters, electric panel, main water shut off.
The covers need to be taken off electric panels, if that can not be done we will advise that our client have the home owner hire an electrician to inspect the panel after the obstacle has been removed.
This adds to the cost and frustration of selling a home. Please make sure that there is not a car parked under the attic access, that the detached garage has a means of getting in to it.
(P.S. the panel in the photo, the wall cabinet is over the side of the panel – not permitted and the brand : Federal Pacific is known to have serious defects that pose a fire hazard and should be replaced)
