Wall Outlet Requirements

Wall (plug) outlets are required to be within 12' of each other, so as to not have to go more than 6' either way for a plug. This 50 year old San Antonio home, as seen on this Home Inspection had numerous areas lacking minimum plug outlet requirements

I used a home inspector when

I used a home inspector when I boguht my first home and I’m glad I did. I boguht my home through Taylor Morrison and they suggested that I have a home inspector check everything out before I moved in. I really recommend them, and when you request information from their website you’ll be entered in to a contest to win a dream vacation. I think that home inspectors can save a new buyer a lot of hassle down the road.
