Ever wonder how best to deal with bad builders who drag the industry's reputation through the mud? Apparently, the Australians play a rough-and-tumble game. When a kitchen company started by George Jorgensen of Brisbane failed financially this year, the authorities yanked his license—forever. That's right: Under new laws, a builder cited for a second financial failure can be banned from the industry for life. What's more, he becomes a major liability. No company in which he serves as a director, secretary, or “influential person” can hold a license, due to his proximity. Now that's what we call tough love, mates.
