Re: Chimney Sweep...

Five years in our house... and now we have a sweep. Can't get rid of them. Apparently snipers and mantraps are illegal.

For anyone in Baselland, the relevant laws and tariffs are here:

Laws: http://www.baselland.ch/761-111-htm.301803.0.html
Fees: http://www.baselland.ch/761-17-htm.301805.0.html

Nice work if you can get it - 60CHF just for turning up. It's going to be fun. We don't use our fireplace, haven't in 5 years and never intend to use it. Our heating is gas, and we have a service contract which gets it serviced every year.

We'll have a chat with our Gemeinde office tomorrow, and with the company that services our boiler. Any bill we get will be gone over with a fine-toothed comb.

Our next door neighbours are going to have even more fun. They removed their fireplace four years ago...
Anyone have recent information regarding the requirement in Basel Land? I recall they were getting rid of the requirement in Basel Stadt, but I wasn't sure if it went through and whether BL did the same.

I received a card in the post from the local KF.

Oh wait. Found this: https://www.binningen.ch/de/dienstle...egedienst%20ab.
