Additional site visits
Charges are based on a maximum of 10 site inspections. Not all work will require this many inspections but if more than 10 inspections are required we may make an additional charge based upon an hourly rate.
Where invoices are issued we expect payment within 28 days. If debt recovery exceeds 60 days a default charge for recovery of £125 will be applied in addition to the outstanding amount.
Completion inspections after 12 months
There will be an additional charge of £75 for completion inspections where 12 months have passed since the previous inspection.
