Hello all!

Just was wondering if anyone else had this message attached to their work orders: MUST CONTACT CITY INSPECTOR *** TO ADVISE HIM THAT YOU WILL BE COMPLETING WORK AT
THE PROPERTY. CONTACT MUST BE MADE PRIOR TO COMPLETING YOUR WORK.

Does anyone know why we would need to "all of a sudden" be contacting the local inspector?

Thanks.

The only reason I would think you would have to contact the inspectors is if you are doing work that requires a permit. Which here in NJ is anything related to replacing plumbing or rehab.

I think its a good thing,wish they all required it. It would eliminate all or most unlicensed people from doing the work:thumbsup:

It's not fun trying to get with inspectors especially in the big cities. I have my fair share when completing code violation work orders. I couldn't imagine having to do it on all work orders.

I find it comical at best.



I wonder who got their tit in the wringer and cost the siblings a ton of money for them to now require this.

LOL bout dang time!! All companies should require this.....

I can tell you what has happened IMO.....someone purchased a home and it is damaged from poor workmanship or it flooded from improper plumbing or mold formed from improper drying or roof leaked from poor roofing AND NO PERMITS WERE PULLED.....guess who fixes then?

The bros are on the hook because the contractor probably quit 6 months ago due to their horse crap office ways.

Wouldn't do a damn bit of good here. Only inspections are electrical and plumbing in town, Nothing in the county except an electrical drop (meter) inspection. Permits?? What are they??:laughing::laughing: I'm all for less government. That is why i moved out of the midwest in 2004..............

There are code violations that require the inspector to return and sign off on the repair.
There are violations listed in the report that are vague and require further explanation.
