Additional Notes

Complaint: Have a home warranty thru *** they reccomended immediate response plumbing to come an replace our water heater. They came out on Friday late afternoon an accessed the situation. Upon there inspection we were told water heater neede to be replaced an *** would cover that. (***. Is our home warranty company) they then proceeded to inform us that it needed to be brought up to city code. Which we would have to pay for. I understood that an we agreed to that. They said they would return on Saturday 7-12-14 between 10 &2pm. This did not happen had to phone them to ask what was going on an when they might arrive was told they only had one crew on duty they would arrive when they were done with other job. I proceeded to ask why no courtesy an was treated rudely. One of the charges was a permit fee 100 dollars. The permit was not pulled an work completed with out. When I called to question that I was told they were doing me a favor an they could not pull it do to it being the weekend. I proceeded to call city they told me said permit was applied for after I spoke to company an it was done on line. They also said they could of obtained on weekend thru same on line website. I ask about inspection they said I needed to schedule that myself. The city informed me they should have done this. I ask company back for permit charge of 100 dollars an was told for what. I proceeded to say because you all did not file protocol. It could be easily an amacabily if the would do this. Thank You

Desired Settlement: Receive permit fee back.

Business Response: We kindly replaced this water heater on the weekend and unfortunately the person who obtains permits does not work on Saturday. The permit was obtained from the City of San Antonio on Monday morning.  We regret that the owner of the home is unhappy with the situation.  We normally do not replace water heaters on the weekend but she explained that she and her family could not wait until Monday, so as a courtesy to the owner we got her unit replaced.  We will not be refunding the permit fee.  There has been no protocol issues violated except our company replacing the water heater on Saturday, but we thought we were helping.

Consumer Response: Complaint: ********

I am rejecting this response because:I sorry the business feels this way an the facts are somewhat misstated. When I talked to the city they said the permit could be obtained thru thru the weekend by applying on line the same way they obtained it on Monday. It is unfortunate that they conduct there business this way. As for as as the permit refund goes they can keep it. It was the principal of the issues at hand which they refuse to see the whole picture. 


******* *****   Oh yes I forgot to mention they did no favor for us we paid for the service are lack there of.
