Pensioner waiting 11 months for reno project to be finished

THE new year has failed to deliver any good news on the building front for pensioner Hilda Salter.

The builder she says she paid $13,000 in February last year to do renovations on her Mount Morgan home has still not finished the job.

The Queensland Building and Construction Commission is preparing a report after visiting her home in mid-December.

It is believed the QBCC will finish the work on insurance.

The builder last contacted Hilda in November, saying on two occasions he would return to complete the work. He failed to show either time.
