Department of Fair Trading v GSG

Building licence cancelled by Fair Trading NSW.

Fair Trading NSW cancelled the defendant’s carpentry licence.

The defendant had made an application to the New South Wales Department of Fair Trading to vary his personal licence for carpentry to the category of general building work.

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

During the review process of this 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 our client’s existing carpentry licence on the grounds that he was not a ‘fit and proper person’.

 The firm successfully secured a renewal of the carpentry licence and he also ensured he received his new general building work licence.
