Only thing I'll give them is at least they did not snip the grounding conductors
This image was from years ago when I went up into an attic, took this picture to show the client, gave them a price to correct. I was amazed though on their attempt to follow some form of normalcy by using J Boxes.

Is there a problem with this image.
replying to the text makes the page a little easier to follow, so if possible when viewing an image to comment on simply reply to the posters comment, the conversation is always directed to the image for further insight. thanks

Who has the authority to enforce the NEC when permits are not required?
Our local fire department looks for blatant issues, like the exposed wiring in picture #9, but that is only in buildings open to the public.

I think its the electrical contractors obligation to inform the home or business owner of potentially dangerous issues, and any thing really dangerous needs to be disconnected mainly to protect the property owner and our own liability, we as professionals are indirectly obligated to secure a life threatening condition or call some one to address it, at least get in writing that the client has been informed of such a harmful or dangerous condition.

I've posted several times about this, and was promptly told by most here to shut up about 'getting it in writing'.
