    [QUOTE=izwozral;992767]The building inspector called on Friday to check the steel beams are the right size and sitting on pads stones as specified. The inspector knows our builder well and obviously has trust in his work, as we do, the inspector was at our house for no longer than 3 minutes.
    This morning we received an invoice for £455.99 for the inspection plus one further vist which I assume will also be no longer than 3 minutes.
    I have just queried the invoice with the local council, they informed me it is correct.

    Not a bad little earner if you can get it![/QUOTEEven more expensive than prostitues for three minutes, twats.
    A collision is what happens when two motorists go after the same pedestrian.

    Bargain, he could have stayed 60 mins, found loads of things he wasn’t happy with and landed you with the builder bill to sort.

    The job is having four walls knock out and a loft conversion.
    Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false and by rulers as useful.

    ONE up fee here of £125 no mater how many times you want him out to inspect work in progress.
    And forgot £50 in brown envelope makes sure all is ok.

    You don't want to antagonise the planners, do you. Not with future inspections to get through. They might decide to work to rule.
    Perhaps when all is completed, then would be time to as them to check the figures .
