The Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC) is urging consumers, contractors and suppliers to be cautious in their dealings with Grant Laurence Brydon, trading as Kingaroy Sheds.
QBCC Commissioner, Steve Griffin said Mr Brydon does not hold a QBCC licence to undertake shed/garage building over 10 square metres and is not able to carry out, or enter into contracts to carry out said building work in Queensland.
He said Mr Brydon had been carrying out unlawful building work in Kingaroy and surrounding areas. The QBCC has investigated Mr Brydon for unlicensed contracting, for having no written contracts and for taking excessive deposits, and has issued infringement notices for these offences, he said.
“I warn anyone dealing with Mr Brydon to exercise extreme caution and seek legal advice before making any payments, to protect their interests,” Mr Griffin said.
The Queensland home warranty insurance scheme may not be available to all consumers if engaging unlicensed contractors. The QBCC urges home owners to conduct research before engaging contractors, and recommends engaging a licensed contractor even for small jobs. If you are in doubt as to whether the entity you are contracting with is licensed or holds the correct licence to do the work, please conduct a free online licence search or contact the QBCC on 139 333.
