Court actions

Melbourne Magistrates’ Court has imposed injunctions on two men who accepted $21,190 in payments for fencing and building work that was never carried out.

On 3 May 2011, the court ordered that Samer and Najy Rayes be restrained from:

  • demanding or accepting payment before the satisfactory completion of work
  • demanding or accepting deposits for work
  • entering into a major domestic building contract unless registered as a builder under the Building Act 1993.

The men, who have not refunded the money, were ordered to pay court costs of $2862.
