Virginia Law – Do cable boxes need to be grounded?

Question by : Virginia Law – Do cable boxes need to be grounded?
I live in Virginia. I had lightning hit my house, blew the breaker, but everything connected via hardware to my network has had problems. The items are either dead or have dead components. When the electrician came by he noted that the cable box installed by COX was not grounded, so it’s likely that while the breaker stopped the surge from entering the house via electrical outlets, it still came in though the cable line. Is it a requirement in Virginia or nationwide for cable boxes to be grounded or is it just optional? I would like to call them and request it be done, but I don’t want to be completely ignorant if they try and say they don’t have to do it.

Best answer:

Answer by joseph
The cable from the pole to your home should be grounded
just before the service enters the house. This is a code that
should have been done by the cable installer. Failure to do
this could result in a structure fire, loss of property and even
death! Contact your cable company and an attorney. They
are ultimately responsible for your electronics since your
system was improperly installed!

I need to figure out if a quit claim deed would work for me.?

Question by : I need to figure out if a quit claim deed would work for me.?
I currently have a mobile home that I still pay a mortgage on in California. I am living in Virginia and trying to get the mobile home off my hands. The mobile home is in a park that is “Owner occupied only” so I am not able to rent it out to help offset the costs of keeping it there. If I were to quit claim deed it to someone would that put them in the position of “owner” and allow them to occupy the mobile home. I am not looking to make anything off of the sale, it just needs to be out of my hair.

Best answer:

Answer by Sarah
Yes, but I think they would still be using your credit. If I understand it correctly, a quit claim deed transfers ownership, but the new person doesn’t go out and get their own mortgage. Make sure it’s someone trustworthy!

At the same time, rising deficits, high trade imbalances, a declining dollar, and a lingering economic downturn have placed America’s position within the global economy in peril-and have policymakers deliberating over the keys to America’s economic future.
