His truck's been repossessed and he's got 2 defaults against his equipment leases.
His company hasn't filed a tax return in 2 years and his partner is banned from holding a builders licence.
Between them they've had 3 building companies go into liquidation and a heap of sub-contractors won't work for them anymore.
IT'S YOUR CALL
When checking to see whether your builder or tradesperson has a current and correct type of licence, it is important to understand that Australian state government licensing authorities and departments are limited and restricted in the information they can provide you, due to privacy and operating guidelines. Due diligence reports on your builder are easily available and can address this critical information gap and substantially minimise your risk exposure.
The information obtained through a free licence search cannot tell you:
are they a good builder
do they have a history of disputes
are they in financial trouble
do they have a history of 'going broke'
is there a history of not finishing jobs properly
how long have they really been in business
do their references really check out
what is their company structure and do their associates 'have bad form'
are they insured properly
are you insured properly
This 'missing' information is only available through the Australian Builders Background Checks
