Unfortunately there really isn't anyway that you
can tell if the required bonding is in place .. whether it is equipotential or otherwise. If the permit is open and the electrical failed you really would have no choice but to have the permit finalized via another inspection after an electrician qualified on pool electrical has verified code compliance.
So your choices are .. have the seller do this or you will have to assume that responsibility. One way or the other code compliance will have to be met most likely before the house can be sold. I would think that the open permit would be enforced to be disposed by the local jurisdiction now that it is at their attention.
