Customer Question
Hired a license plumber to...
Hired a license plumber to do a job regarding a (dismissed violation DOB) NYC
1. He was hired 11/2018 and his expediter was to fire for a permit.
Jan. 2018 I found the plumbers expediter messed up and it wasn't filed.
Filed In Jan. 2018 waited quite some time and then found it was denied, due to not paying the (I think it is ) $560.40 for getting a plumbing violation even though it was dismissed way before Jan. 2018.
Waiting again, told they can't just straighten this out it has to go through the full wait time 3 to 8 weeks again.
Not sure this is true. Not sure he should of applied for a permit listing a dismissed violation on the permit?
2. When we finally do get the permit plumbers secretary told us his workers will be doing the job and he will not be here while they do the work.
I thought he has to be here while work is being done due to he has the license?
In NYC the new law is the DOB has to inspect the work also and a gas test and maybe more work is required also.
Any way to expedite getting the permit? I have contacted the DOB many times and no real help so far.
Once the DOB plumbing inspector comes into the house will he be looking for more things also like the DOB in the back yard did?
