After several complaints to the building commission not only from myself but many other clients, why didn't the building commission act sooner.I still have not had a reply from the BC seeking answers as to why Freelife were allowed to trade fully knowing they had serious liquidity problems.Trades were not paid but many clients properties were left idle for eight months or more.Freelife were over claiming for progress payments,these were only a few of the complaints yet the BC did absolutely nothing.Shame on the BC.

Business News, how about doing an investigation on the Building Commission. They are paid for by the clients of all builders, including the likes of Freelife Homes. And what do they give in return. After numerous complaints to BC they did not meet with Freelife till about 2 weeks before the company went in to administration. BC are toothless just like Fuelwatch!! Make the Building Commission accountable.
