You may come across a situation when purchasing an older home that certain situations do not meet current code requirements but met them when the house was built. Here is a situation regarding stair rails. This stair rail met code when it was installed but according to today standards do not because of changes to code. In this instance, this is not considered a defect. Any request for change would be to improve. I am always available to answer any questions you may have.
