In connection with any on-site inspection, the owner, subdivider, or agent shall defray all expenses incurred by the inspector in the course of the inspection.
(3) Make additional on-site inspections of each
subdivision for which the owner, subdivider, or agent shall defray all expenses incurred by the inspector in the course of the inspection.
(4) Require the owner, subdivider, or agent to
deposit the expenses to be incurred in any inspection, in advance, based upon an estimate by the Department of the expenses likely to be incurred.
(5) In those cases where an on-site inspection of any

An inspection of the subsequent registration may be made in connection with the next succeeding on-site inspection.
