Adelaide homebuilder 7 Star Constructions goes into administration after clients were left with half-finished houses
- 7 Star Constructions of Adelaide under management
- The construction company’s license was suspended last week
- Disgruntled customers alerted by email on Thursday
A construction company that infamously left clients’ homes half-finished has gone into administration after weeks of mounting pressure.
Adelaide’s 7 Star Constructions alerted disgruntled owners by email on Thursday, who say they are “relieved” the debacle is over.
“You have recently been in contact with Consumer and Business Services about issues related to your builder,” wrote senior regulatory official Graham Close.
‘I can now report that 7 Star Constructions Pty Ltd is in administration today.’
7 Star Construction owner Qamil Veseli had his license suspended last week after dozens of customer complaints after half-finished homes (pictured)
“This means that claims can be made under their construction indemnity insurance policies,” the email said.
“This provides coverage of up to $150,000 per property for the additional costs of rectifying defects and completing construction on their homes.”
The news comes as dozens of complaints from disgruntled customers led to the suspension of the license of 7 Star Constructions owner Qamil Veseli last week.
Long construction delays in Modbury and Plympton left the properties unfinished and exposed to weather damage for three consecutive winters.
Veseli previously said 7News he ‘felt bad’ for his clients.
“Everything has gotten out of control, right now we are under great pressure,” his statement read.
One client, Christine Jefferey, waited over two years for her home on Reservoir Road in Modbury to be completed.
The Adelaide company (pictured) has now gone into administration and customers received an email alert on Thursday from Consumer and Business Services.
‘(I have) mixed emotions,’ Jefferey said the advertiser.
I feel relieved. The whole experience has truly been a nightmare.
“Everyone has been in limbo and not knowing where we stand, there was no communication with the builder about difficulties in completing (the houses) or anything like that,” he added.
“It’s been us pushing him the whole time for answers.”
The whole situation is grim, Jefferey said, as she has been pushing to finish her house.
They took away his license and now he’s sunk.
Jefferey added that he planned to file an insurance claim in hopes of finding an alternative builder to complete his home, though he worries the process could end up “drawing out.”
Six other 7-star clients were uninsured, he said.
‘What does that mean for everyone else?’
“It’s been emotionally draining and tonight has been a relief.”
