Code Compliance, MN Electrical Inspections

Are you thinking of buying a new home or perhaps selling your home and relocating? At Edison Electric, we have the experience and know how to help you comply with inspection report issues and city code compliance reports.

Many cities in the metropolitan area now require a point of sale home inspection before a homeowner can list their home for sale. These required inspections are performed by a city official in an effort to make sure houses in the city are kept to a minimum standard. Many times, electrical repairs are required before a home can be sold or listed for sale.

Having a licensed electrician perform all of the repairs for a point of sale inspection is a wise decision because most of the repairs require an electrical permit and another separate inspection to make sure the work was performed correctly. Hiring an unlicensed individual to perform electrical repairs can jeopardize the entire home sale process and usually ends up costing the homeowner more money and causing more stress when all is said and done.
