I'm a trustee for our church. We've got a new pastor comming from CA t NJ in a week and I'm trying to get a CO for the parsonage.
The house was built in 1954, and has had no major improvements since.
The housing inspector said we need to have GFI's in the kitchen, baths, garage, and basement before we can get a CO. I have been through literally hundreds of these inspections in other juristictions because I was an apartment super for a few years. And I believe that unless there have been improvements over the dollar amounts calculated using the formulas in the BOCA, you only have to conform to what was required at the time of construction.
Now please don't tell me that GFI's are a good idea. I know that nd we will install GFI's whether required or not but I'd like to know if this inspector is right or if I am.
And if you can reference the code or regulation that requires the upgrade, I'd appreciate that.
