Public warned to avoid dealing with unregistered builder

The Building Commissioner is warning the public to exercise caution in any dealings with Frayson Pty Ltd (Frayson) or its sole director Dianella man Armand Noor, after receiving information the company may be continuing to operate after its registration was suspended earlier this year.

The building contractor registration of Frayson, trading as Instyle Residence and New Life Renovations, was suspended on 18 February 2015. As a consequence the company is not entitled to carry out prescribed building services.

The Building Services Board has serious doubts about the ability of Frayson to carry out its obligations as a building contractor in a professional manner and has commenced disciplinary action against both Mr Noor and his company in the State Administrative Tribunal.

Despite it being suspended pending the outcome of the disciplinary proceedings, the Building Commission has received information that Frayson is continuing to carry out building work on a project in Hillarys and is entering into or attempting to enter into building contracts with new clients in breach of statutory requirements.

Mr Noor advertises his company’s services under the trading name Instyle Residence on a number of websites.

“It is important for home owners to protect themselves from unsatisfactory and potentially unsafe work by checking the building service provider holds the required registration or licence before engaging them to carry out the work,” Building Commissioner Peter Gow said.

“You can check a building service provider holds the necessary registration on the Building Commission website at www.dmirs.wa.gov.au/building-commission.

“The Building Commission will continue to name those who put consumer interests and the reputation of the building industry at risk.”

Anyone with information or engaged in any dealings with Mr Noor or his company in relation to building work is asked to contact the Building Commission on 1300 489 099 or bcinfo@dmirs.wa.gov.au.
