Bootleg Grounds

October 8th, 2021

Hello Friends and realtors and home buyers – a quick PSA today reposted from Kerry Brown at A-Z home inspections.

Bootleg Ground

This is a very serious and illegal condition. We see it all the time from shady home flippers and home sellers. It makes most plug checking devices used by inspectors to test outlets read “correctly wired / grounded”.
Make 100% sure you get a home inspection and that your home inspector is removing cover plates in each room to see how things are wired and to verify the type and condition of the wiring – MANY DO NOT DO THIS.

If you are curious if your home has bootleg grounds, contact us today at 765-414-3913 or fill out our contact form to set up a service call!
