Trish has attracted media attention from many news outlets including Channel 9 News, Channel 7 News, The Sunday Mail, Smart Property Magazine, Your Investment Property Magazine, Real Estate Business, Quest News and QLD Master Builders magazine primarily because of her petition that is currently in Qld Parliament seeking consumer protection rights for home buyers.

Due to her background in property law and her 14 years of experience running BuildingPro, she has identified that no consumer protection rights exist for buyers who buy defective and unsafe properties in Queensland and all other Australian states except the ACT. This realisation prompted her to commence a national online petition and a Queensland Parliament petition that has been sponsored by the Hon Kate Jones MP.

The QLD Attorney-General’s department has confirmed that this area of law needs reform.

Trish is available to speak about this matter for radio, podcasts, television networks and other media outlets. See the below articles and videos of her recent media appearances.
