Action taken over unlicensed builder’s advertising tactics

17 December 2015

The state’s consumer watchdog is reminding tradespeople it is against the law to advertise as being entitled to carry on business as a building work contractor without holding a relevant licence.

Complaints made to Consumer and Business Services (CBS) alleged that Damien Knowles (trading as Designer Paving and Patios) had engaged in building works relating to the installation of a downpipe, stormwater drainage system and retaining wall after advertising his services online.
