  • Summary: The Board was presented evidence that there were numerous and serious defects in the building work undertaken by the Respondent. The Respondent failed to comply with the building consent and subsequent instructions from the Building Consent Authority. Due to a payment dispute, the Respondent failed to provide a record of work as required by the Act and this is not a sufficiently good reason to withhold that document. The Respondent also has a number of previous complaints that the Board have determined. The Respondent’s licence is therefore cancelled and he may not reapply for a period of two years. The Respondent must also pay costs of $2,000 and the Board will further publicise their decision.
