£20,000?

SaintGeorge Fri 19-May-06 12:33:22

Is it sewarage or water?

Do they have to dig up any public land?

Come on, give clues woman!

zippitippitoes Fri 19-May-06 12:34:51

it's connecting to the sewer..travel about 1 metre but has to drop down

lorina Fri 19-May-06 12:37:35

Over 10k but less than 15k ?
Are you going ahead with it ?!

SaintGeorge Fri 19-May-06 12:39:58

Well going by standard charges, visit fees, infrastructure, planning etc etc should still come in at no more the £2.5K.

Anything more suspect a rip off.

zippitippitoes Fri 19-May-06 12:46:05

I shall take you out of your suspenders in a minute

VeniVidiVickiQV Fri 19-May-06 12:54:09

£10,055 VAT zero rated!!!!

SaintGeorge Fri 19-May-06 13:02:23




Have they given you a breakdown of how they get to that figure?

PinkKerPlink Fri 19-May-06 13:03:11

thats ridiculous

VeniVidiVickiQV Fri 19-May-06 13:03:29



I would ask for a detailed breakdown of costs too.

zippitippitoes Fri 19-May-06 13:03:52

nope

SaintGeorge Fri 19-May-06 13:08:48

Have you checked their website, see if there are any cost estimations on there?

Really sounds way off the mark.
