Aveling Homes began construction on 454 houses in 2015-16.

Builder denies claims of 'misleading' reviews

One of Western Australia’s 10 biggest homebuilders has denied any wrongdoing, after the corporate regulator claimed it created and manipulated review websites to spread favourable information about the company.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission today said it had instituted Federal Court proceedings against Aveling Homes over the creation of a number of review websites for both Aveling Homes and its First Home Owners Centre brand.

The ACCC said the websites created by Aveling appeared to be independent and gave consumers the impression they were part of independent website, Product Review.
