Another building firm suddenly collapsed, leaving dozens of families with unfinished homes
Builder Red Bluff Homes has gone into liquidation, customers of 21 unfinished projects were informed Friday
Another Victorian housebuilder has collapsed just months after major construction company Porter Davies abandoned 1,500 half-built homes across the state.
Red Bluff Homes, in Melbourne’s southeast, contacted the owners of 21 unfinished homes on Friday to announce it had gone into liquidation on Thursday.
The news follows a string of complaints from customers, suppliers and merchants about money owed to Red Bluff Homes.
Liquidators Petr Vrsecky and Glenn Franklin from PKF Melbourne, who specialize in insolvency claims, have been appointed to manage the company’s remaining projects and debts.

A PKF spokesperson told the Herald Sun, ‘We are currently reviewing the company’s operations, operations and financial position and this includes assessing all buildings under construction to determine their current status.’
‘We are also investigating the possibility of assisting other builders to complete the project.’
At least one former Red Bluff Homes customer has taken the builder to court.
In May a Melbourne mother said the company had ‘brought her to tears’ after she canceled the contract for her family’s dream home after not returning her $23,675 deposit.
Google reviews of Red Bluff Homes are also full of alleged bad experiences with the builder.
One tradie wrote: ‘We completed a job for Red Bluff Homes and paying my invoice was a nightmare.
‘Directors are full of empty promises and excuses.
‘Now I have to waste my time taking it to debt collectors or small claims. Stay away from this company!’
Red Bluff Homes is said to owe money to suppliers and contractors after a Melbourne mother claimed her deposit on a canceled contract was never returned (pictured, stock image of Trady at work).
Another former customer said: ‘Very disappointed with the service and quality of the build. Would definitely not recommend.’
Building suppliers Dahlsens, PGH Bricks & Pavers, Bristeel Roofing and Brickworks filed documents with ASIC for registered security interests against Red Bluff Homes, the Herald Sun reported.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Red Bluff Homes for comment.
