I found out today, that the drainage system in our garage does not correspond to the plans which were submitted to and approved by the town hall. In talks with the developer and our administrator, I was informed that this is in fact quite normal, and that the builder rarely sticks exactly to the plans.
I asked the inevitable question: if the plans of the project are not adhered to, how/why does the town hall grant an LFO? The answer was that the town hall's inspector, when the building is complete and the LFO has been applied for, rarely does a thorough check, but most likely just checks that the total build size is correct.
Which led to the next inevitable question: if that's all they do, then why does it take so long to get the LFO???????????
We were lucky; ours came through only 6 months after we completed (not recommended) and it was clear what the delay had been for, namely a wall separating us from the next plot had not been built - in fact because the builder there had given our builder a backhander not to build the wall, as access to their construction was easier without it. As a result, we had to wait until that building was finished, before the wall was built, but after that the LFO was granted fairly promptly.
Some people have reported preposterous delays, so really, why does it take so long?
