Shinning the light on your Rights


A realistic Warrantee on building and construction work including work on homes or related, is 7 - 10 years.

With most buildings 7 years being the mark.

Some Companies or independent ABN holders are offering related jobs warrantees of over 20 years !
Various Builders associations and other organisation, agree this type of warrantee is unrealistic.
Personally I am more likely to believe a Companies good will if they have been trading for over 10 years, when their reputation is important to them.

So buyers beware warrantees are not always written in stone, they are however a very convincing way to win over your custom, maybe from a more genuine Company.

1. Please think carefully, is it a new Company or business offering these unrealistic warrantees? and is the business still going to be in around for the given warrantee that is being offered?

( Most new businesses fail within the first 5 years. )
( Ask how long their company has been going?) Not how long they have been working in the industry, but how long the Company that is giving the Warrantee has been in business for.

Question: How long has this Company been going for,???

a) Write it down, and
b) Do your research. (Hint) ASIC easy

2. Are they going to still be trading,???

3. So Please use common sense.
Sometimes in trying to get the best deal, customers forget common sense, if the deal is too good to be true, it most likely is.
