Garage wiring and time to start over.
Garages are a vital part of the home selling. Most homes have a garage. So when you put your home up for sale then you should have a complete inspection on the home and detached garage.
A pre listing inspection would have found these issues and the owner could have had the issues repaired or the very least had them listed in the disclosure statement.
Safety is number one priority.
Having poor wiring creates safety issues within the building being inspected. But this garage had a very long way to go to get to a safe wiring system.
Pictures tell the story.
This is why it's so important the take as many pictures as possible.
Here is a few of those issues listed I the report for the buyers.
