If you're using a building contractor or tradesperson for services such as residential building, wiring, plumbing, draining, gas fitting, air conditioning or refrigeration work (except plug in appliances), you should check that they have a valid contractor licence.
You can check for a licence online. If you can't find it, contact NSW Fair Trading to confirm that the person does hold a contractor licence. By law, all contractors must show their licence number on all advertising, stationery and signage.
