25 October 2017

An unlicensed contractor who stole from one client and whose work was of such a poor standard his clients had to spend tens of thousands of dollars fixing it has been fined $15,000 and ordered to repay one of his victims $20,000 in the Adelaide Magistrates Court for breaches of the state’s Building Work Contractor’s Act.

38-year old Amir Armini Mehr, of Marden, pleaded guilty to breaches of the Act, admitting to carry out work as a building contractor when he wasn’t licensed to do so.
