There were dreams that turned into a nightmare like what had happened with Beverley and Stan Johnson. According to a Senior Journalist Melissa Heagney from an article she wrote in The Sydney Morning Herald, the couple decided to build their dream home on a very steep block of land in McCrae, about 88 kilometres south-east of Melbourne about three years ago, using Archiblox, a modular and prefabricated home builder which recently went into voluntary liquidation. The Johnsons is one of many in Melbourne and Sydney affected by Archiblox’s demise, losing money and sleep during their ordeal.
This is not unusual. Did you know that in New South Wales alone, over 570 builders went bust in the year 2019?
It is sad to know that there are many who committed their dream home to builders that have gone into voluntary administration, causing job losses and leaving its customers unable to live in homes or extension projects they have already paid for.

Building is an exciting time. It can also be a time of great anxiety if you choose the wrong builder. Did you know Builder Finders does not accept every builder. Many builders who apply to join the Builder Finders panel don’t make it. There is a 62 step vetting process for builders to join the panel. In addition, the Builder Finders team conducts comprehensive due diligence through reference checks, ASIC searches and CreditorWatch reports to ensure they are not insolvent. You may not be aware that in the last financial year just over 500 builders went bust. Worse still, right now there are builders in financial difficulty that are cutting corners to stay afloat.
