I was told they already had a quote of $25.00 per unit. Of course my fees are way higher. By the way the $25.00 quote is by a franchised inspection company. You can guess what this prospective strata client is going to do. The franchised inspector has apparently never done any thing like this before, and has totaly mis -led this town house strata person. Ignorance and stupidity are bliss. They are not using my company, that is for certain. How can some inspector, properly inspect, and take responsibility for a dwelling while only charging $25.00, and properly inspect 52 dwelling units in such a short time frame ?
