$10,000 fine and cancellation of registration for non-compliant building work
Friday, 9 October 2015
A man has had his builder's registration cancelled and received a $10,000 fine following an investigation by the Victorian Building Authority (VBA).
Four allegations were found proven against Mr Andrew Renn in relation to the construction of a timber deck, pergola, carport and associated landscaping at a property in Hawthorn. The job was quoted at $120,000, which was agreed upon by the homeowners. Once the quote was accepted, Mr Renn requested a 50 per cent deposit to begin works. Legally, he was only permitted to request a five per cent deposit.
