I've just done a home inspection for a property in escrow and need some help with estimating the cost of a few items. Your feedback is highly appreciated.
1. There are some electric wires going through a few trees to the utility pole on the street. The inspector calls out the safety risk, but we have no idea who we should contact to fix it(we want to keep the trees if possible)? I think we'll ask sellers for some credits, but have no idea how much it'll cost. (please see the image attached.)
2. Outside the house the air condition compressor unit
is located too close to gas meter, which is a violation of safety code. I wonder how much cost it needs to relocate the main gas meter or the compressor? (the compressor is sitting on a concrete base so I guess moving compressor will cost more?).
We are in Los Angeles county.
To me , the wire is a non issue . just have the trees trimmed , way too expensive to move a wire . I have NEVER heard of a "safety code " especially when a AC unit sits next to a gas meter .
Thanks everyone for reply! I've started negotiating with the seller about repair/credit. Will update once I got their answers
