I recently had a licensed (still active I checked) plumber install a shower in our basement bathroom. I asked him before starting the work if he would pull the permits or should I? He stated that he would pull the permits as they fall under his license. After completing the shower, I asked if the city had signed off on the installation and I could continue with the rest of the renovation work. He then said he wasn't aware that he was going to pull the permit, but if he had said this it was his mistake and he would pull the permit. However, he advised me that the city might not sign off on the work since the shower does not have a 24 inch clearance to the sink. I have already paid him in full, and I am not sure what to do. If I make him pull the permits the city wont sign off and it will cost me more money, and I don't know how you would remedy the situation. Please help with any advice. I live in Minnesota if that matters.
