Home Living : October 20th 2009
8 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, October 20, 2009 Check licence » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Trade licences should be checked to avoid expensive and lengthy home building and renovating disputes, says Fair Trading Minister Virginia Judge. ''Consumers should always check the trader's licence number before signing on the dotted line,'' Ms Judge said. ''A licence check will only take a few minutes of your time, but could end up saving you thousands of dollars and a lifetime of heartbreak. ''Your home is one of the biggest investments that you'll ever make and it's important you do everything you can to protect it.'' A licence check enables consumers to obtain details about the validity of the licence. It will also give a rundown on the contractor's history of disciplinary action, insurance claims and Consumer, Trader and Tenancy Tribunal orders not complied with, if any. Consumers can get free information on a trader's licence by logging on to fairtrading.nsw.gov.au or call 133 220. Ms Judge said any person who carried out residential building work worth more than $1000 in labour and materials must have a licence. ''By law, traders must display their licence number on all advertising, stationery and signage,'' she said. Any trader caught breaking the law can risk hefty fines and/or imprisonment.
