Can someone please clarify on the following:
"Tradespeople (whether contracting directly with home owners or sub-contracted through a builder), who do home building work costing over $5,000 (labour and materials), must hold a Fair Trading licence for the type of work they are to do. Regardless of the work's cost, specialist tradespeople must be licensed for doing:
- electrical wiring
- plumbing, draining and gasfitting work
- airconditioning and refrigeration work (except plug-in appliances)."
Does that mean I can't just get a couple of well experienced, but unlicensed mates to assist me with tiling, plastering, carpentry fit out or bricklaying during the build?
I would still have to get someone with a license on site to supervise them?
