Default Who is allowed to do electrical work

There is a shopping plaza in Ca where two idiots do all the handyman work. They do electrical plumbing drywall they take care of everything from painting to fixing fence posts. They have worked for the property management company for ten plus years in the same location. I am remodeling a resteraunt where these guys did all the electrical work for the former tenent wrong. I am finding buried junction boxes, House lighting in from different a different panel in the same conduits as this suites recepticals, exit signs that are on the swithched portion of the lighting circuit. Way to many wires in j boxes. Any way this lack of workmanship is costing me my customer a lot of extra money. Can these guys be held responsabe for their work. And should I be able to back charge for having to redo a lot of stuff that they just hacked in and buried behind drywall. All this work they did in this suite is less than six months old and they told me themselves about how they just hacked it in.

No question that you *should* be doing this work as a change order.
Get paid by YOUR customer first though

But the landlord is the one who should ultimately be paying and your customer is the one who should be getting it from them.
Do what you can to stay out of that fight.

I'd be finding out who the Property Management has insurance with and letting them know of what you have discovered. Their insurance cover would be null and void. You could end up with a lot of new work out of it.

Start counting the dollars.
