Tip 1: How to check a tradie’s licence

Since being involved in the construction industry, I have seen and heard some shocking stories about dodgy work. This is my number one tip for anyone looking for a tradie.

Check their licence:

  1. That it is current
  2. In their own name
  3. That it doesn’t have any restrictions

I didn’t know:

  1. A carpenter can work under another builder’s licence
  2. Their licence may only enable them to do a certain value of work
  3. Some tradies who advertise as a builder may only have a maintenance and cleaning licence

This is the link to do the check:


Feel free to give it a try and look up Damian Batten.
