Double tap at breaker panel
Hello, all, I'm new on the board w/a question. I'm in the process of buying a house. Had a home inspection done and the inspector noted that one of the breakers (identified as outlets and lights) had two wires coming into it. Evidently this is contrary to the NEC. Not sure why this would have been done, as there are three empty spaces in the box, an additional breaker could have been added. The house was built in 1985, with some significant renovations in 1987. The current owner tells me that he has had no trouble with electrical, and I believe him. So the question for you who are wise in things electrical is, how big a deal is this? Should I insist that it be corrected prior to purchase?
Thanks in advance!
