Electrical Inspector Necessary?

I am closing on a new home in a couple days. There was a mistake in the placement of kitchen pendant lights over the island. Builder has agreed to move them and will have to open up the ceiling to do so. The new placement of the middle pendant will be very close to an existing recessed pot light which I'm not particularly happy with although the correction of the pendant placement will be a huge improvement.

QUESTION: Is it code to have county building electrical inspector to re-evauluate this?

I'm afraid the builder may cut corners and since they already have passed inspection they may put my safety in jeopardy. Thanks for any and all replies!

That work would almost certainly require inspection. I wouldn't be too worried, though. It's a pretty straightforward minor job.

I would never get something so paltry inspected. If you want it then ask for it. Be prepared to pay for the inspection though.

I think it is very strange that you actually think your builder would "put my safety in jeopardy". Why are you using him if you think there is even a chance of this?
Sometimes I feel like if I answer any more questions it is like someone trying to climb over a fence to jump off a bridge and me giving them a boost.
