GSG v Department of Fair Trading

Building licence cancelled by Fair Trading NSW.

Fair Trading NSW cancelled the defendant’s carpentry licence.

GSG made an application to the NSW Department of Fair Trading to vary his personal licence for carpentry work to the category of general building work.

GSG had many years of experience as a qualified carpenter on over 300 projects Australia wide and never had a single complaint regarding his work.

During the review process of GSG’s application, NSW Fair Trading determined that in attempting to vary his licence, ‘false and misleading information’ had been provided. As a result of a review conducted by Fair Trading into his licence variation application, the Department proceeded to cancel GSG’s existing carpentry licence on the grounds that he was not a ‘fit and proper person’.

 O’Brien Solicitors successfully secured a restoration and renewal of GSG’s carpentry licence.
