Electrician Advice Needed, DC Code Questions


Recommended Posts

I'm embarrassed to ask this, but here goes. During a kitchen reno a year ago the contractor wired part of the new electrical system into the panel for the tenant apartment below us (in a Cap Hill row house). Until then these were entirely separate electrical systems with separate billing. Now, our tenant is in effect paying for part of our electricity. We only discovered this last week when this circuit tripped and we eventually found the breaker for it was now in the tenant's panel.

My questions are 1) Is this snafu code compliant; 2) should I lawyer up if the contractor refuses to correct the error?

Ugh. I'd really rather talk about food.
