We are another victim of shoddy tradies not qualified or accredited to do their job. We are now going thru legal proceedings which did not need to happen if the govt actually changed the law to protect consumers. It is disgusting that the govt continue to turn a blind eye from this issue because its too hard to regulate. It took a year for us to even get an appointment with the Building authority to have a mediation meeting! What does that say about this industry?!! And probably another year to take it to VCAT! Meanwhile our deck is sitting there rotting away.

I am disgusted by the lack of action by the peak construction groups and the attempts by the Andrews Government to distract attention away from the VBA.

This is simply a case of negligence by the State and local governments in not ensuring a systematic control when Zones
were implemented and one could see the development rush (similar to gold rush) and as a result developments mushroomed overnight and duty of care was out of the window. The developers need to be stricked off the registration or suspended for certain period of time. Voters need to make notes and think before voting in state and local government.

Disgusting that tradies are doing shitty work.
Karma comes back in many ways.
Let’s just do a good job and you’ll be rewarded.
What’s happening to people who work hard and just want a lovely home is devastating.

The cost to repair these buildings shouldn’t be passed onto owners. Developers should be responsible and made accountable to rectify any issues.

Anyone can become a registered builder and doesn't have to have completed an apprenticeship in carpentry. I wouldn't buy a highrise apartment in Australia now. Too many unqualified dodgey "developers". Too many dodgey councils stacked by family members and friends of dodgey developers. Governments gave away their control over building inspections years ago and now we pay the price for privatisation. "Developers" walk away now, architects, the building surveyor all aren't held accountable and now dim dan wants taxpayers to pay while the culprits go free and keep the profits.
