In a commercial lease is the landlord responsible for the electric being up to code before renting to a business?

Question Details: I am opening my own business and am building out the space. It is held up because the electric isn't up to code. The property manager said she would "fix" it after the last tenant left wires hanging out of the walls. I assumed fixing it would mean it was up to code. She had an unlicensed handyman "fix" it, not up to code, and now says it's my responsibility to fix it to code. Who's responsibility is it?
