Re: Responsiblity for local conditions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Burbank had (and hopefully still has) the City divided into 4 quadrants and had soil tests done for each. They then provided the data for anyone to use upon paying a small fee (less than $100 as I recall) to use the data and to repay them for having the tests done. I believe this was only for residential and small commercial projects.

It has never made much sense to me for an owner to have to pay about $2000 for a soil test for a residential addition when one was done a few months earlier at a site next door or a couple of houses away- and this is what is required in some cities.
