Hello Everyone!

I'll be the first to admit I don't belong here....BUT....I've come here to learn from the experts.

I am a real estate appraiser and recently became FHA certified to do FHA appraisals. Now that
doesn't mean much BUT I find I need some electrical knowledge so here I am.

In my property inspections I have to test the outlets in each room. In a house recently I discovered
that some - not all - of the outlets had open ground faults.

This is something I have to report but I want to understand what that means exactly (or as best I can)
and what's involved with fixing the problem.

No, I am not going to fix anything! I just want to know what has to happen when the client has to
have it fixed.

I am in San Jose, CA and I'll fix my profile later. IF any of you have any general appraisal questions
feel free to email me. I can't talk about your property or area (unless you are here) but I can answer
some of the why's of what we do.

Have a great day! Sorry this is so long.
