Are there recommendations/ guidelines regarding the hiring of tradespeople to do work on the complex? – Kris, NSW
Q: Are there recommendations/ guidelines regarding the hiring of tradespeople to do work on the complex? Should the contractor have a license to carry out the repairs? Or can you just have a handyman to carry out the job.
A: If you haven’t already, try speaking to your strata manager or strata committee as they may have trusted contractors that they rely on and regularly use.
If you are on the committee and are looking to find a contractor, it is highly recommended that you look into properly certified and trusted contractors when it comes to hiring tradespeople to work on your strata property. Be sure to check on things such as their level of insurance cover and certifications.
