A win for consumers after unlicensed builder faces court

28 July 2016

An unlicensed builder has faced court and paid back consumers that were left out-of-pocket following a prosecution by the state’s consumer watchdog, Consumer and Business Services (CBS).

Complaints made to CBS alleged that Brent MacLeod (trading as MacLeod Landscape Construction and Maintenance and Geecan Constructions) was advertising his services online and entering contracts for building works relating to fencing and retaining walls without an appropriate licence.
