How to report aluminum wiring


Recommended Posts

I will tell my client not to move into the condominium I inspected for him today until the condominium, now wired with solid-strand aluminum lower branch circuits, is completely re-wired with new copper wiring.  And, I will tell him why.

Now, if this was my daughter trying to buy a condo in this 24-unit building, I wouldn't let her, knowing there could be 23 other units there waiting to catch fire.  Should I relate this concern to the buyer as well, and if so, what language would you suggest?

Here's my first draft. . .

Safety Concern  There is certainly the possibility that some, most, or all of the other condominium units in this building are also wired with aluminum wiring.  If so, it’s my opinion living in this building would pose a very real fire hazard.

I might prefer to say something along the lines of...inquire of the HOA if there are any other condo's in this building also known to have aluminum wiring and if so, what has been done about it.
