A builder was charged by the Building Practitioners Board with failing to provide a record of work on a renovation job.

The builder denied not having provided a record of work and provided proof of a record of work supplied to the owner only one month after the builder was removed from the site.

Having received that record of work the owner complained to the Board that one had not been provided and failed to disclose that he already had a record of work.  He was attempting to force the builder to provide a record of work for work done by the new builder.

A builder is only required to provide a record of work (to the owner and territorial authority) for work they have done.  The builder had done all they were required to.
