CAVALIER Homes Ballarat has gone into liquidation.
However, all local clients have been guaranteed their homes will be completed.
While Cavalier Homes Ballarat was no longer part of the national company, Cavalier Homes Australia and New Zealand general manager Carmel Baker said they would ensure all contracts were met.
“Cavalier Homes Ballarat is no longer a member of our franchise system but it has gone into liquidation,” Ms Baker said.
“We are currently investigating all the implications because what is important to us is our customer base.
“We want to make sure no-one is affected by this.
“Their houses will be completed by other franchises.
“We will do what we need to do but we need to ascertain what we need to do and we need to work through the processes.”
Ms Baker said she expected to talk to affected clients today.
“From a brand perspective it is important to look after them.
“The customers are our priority and we want to complete their homes as hassle-free as possible.”
It is still unclear what the implications will be for sub-contractors employed by the company.
Ms Baker said Cavalier Homes Australia and New Zealand had been sold to new owners only three weeks ago so she didn’t know when the Ballarat business had left the company.
Cavalier Homes Ballarat is a family-run business located in Sutton Street, Delacombe.
The owners could not be contacted yesterday for comment, along with the liquidators Worrells Solvency and Forensic Accountants in Melbourne.
