Hi, I have an electrical safety/fire hazard question. My sister bought a relitively new house (1&1/2 yrs.old) this past summer and I am visting now and I have noticed that every time I throw a light switch or plug in a power cord, that there is a spark within the outlet or switch! I am currious that if this is commonplace with new houses and if this could be an safety/fire hazard concern? And if this is a safety issue, would the former owners and or realtor be liable because they did not tell my sister about this condition?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
