Before hiring a contractor, check the following details below.
1)Does the contractor have a current work cover policy (if they don’t, you may be personally liable for their injuries on your property)?
2)Does the contractor hold a current contractor licence?
3)Does the licence cover the type of work in the contract?
4)Is the name and number on the licence the same as on the contract?
5)Does the contractor have current public liability insurance?
6)The deposit for work under $20,000.00 is % 10, work over $25,000.0 is % 5.
7)Is the procedure for variations to an agreed price understood (if there are extra things to do)?
8)Are you aware of who is to obtain any council approval for the work?
9)Is the work to be undertaken effectively explained in the contract, plans or specifications?
10)The contractor must have a policy of home warranty insurance to show you, if work is over $12,000.00.
11)Has the contractor given you a document that explains the operation of the home building act 1989 and the procedures for the resolution of contract and insurance disputes?
It is wise to use a contract issued by the department of fair trading, for work under $25,000.00 (two pages) or a contract for work over $25,000.00 (a few more pages). They are completely free of cost, very simple to read and complete, they protect the customer and the contractor.
Jobs that are small buiding repairs or small contract works can cost the building owner a fortune in legal fees, due to uninsured and unlicenced tradesmen performing defective work, or damaging your property.
