Building and Energy is advising property owners affected by the closure of the Pindan Group to immediately contact their home indemnity insurance (HII) provider, QBE Insurance (Australia) Ltd.

Pindan Group entered external administration on Tuesday. The group includes four registered building contractors which carried out commercial, government-funded building projects and residential work:

  • Pindan Constructions Pty Ltd (ACN 159 837 500; BC101770);
  • Pindan Contracting Pty Ltd (ACN 120 076 360; BC12373);
  • Pindan Homes Pty Ltd (ACN 612 210 643; BC101771); and
  • Pindan Projects WA Pty Ltd (ACN 130 857 617; BC101769).

Building and Energy Executive Director Saj Abdoolakhan said people with HII policies whose homes are under construction by a Pindan building contractor should contact QBE to discuss arrangements for the completion of their homes.

“Anyone whose home was built by Pindan in the past six years who considers their home has unresolved defects should also discuss the lodgement of a claim under their HII policy with QBE,” Mr Abdoolakhan added.

Pindan clients who have bought an apartment off the plan should contact their developer.

Other clients and subcontractors should contact Ernst & Young – which has been appointed as the external administrator for Pindan – via Lily Paterson on (02) 8295 6376 or lily.paterson@au.ey.com.
