According to Consumers Association of Singapore, complaints involving contractors (renovation and interior design) take up 8% of the total complaints in the year 2017.

This percentage could have been higher given that a lot of such cases usually go unreported.

With renovation being one of the large ticket items for Singaporean couples, a trustworthy interior designing contractor is important. In the first 7 months of the year 2017, a total contract value of $8,420,000 was received over renovation complaints.

The sad part about renovation scams is the long process before it gets reported.

  • A victim needs to first recognise that he has been scammed. This process usually takes up months before the realisation kicks.
  • Usually, quite a huge amount of money is involved which means a troublesome process for the victim in hope of recouping his loss through various means.

By the time a scam got reported, a few other victims would have fallen for the scam by the same ” interior company”.

Types of renovation scams

There are a few common scam methods being adopted these days:

  • Work not done after initial payment, with work falling short of what was promised. When victims grew anxious about the completion deadline of their home, the contractor demanded further payment.
  • Interior designers falling to provide the promised service after payment.
  • Provides an attractive renovation package, but materials used were not of the promised quality.
  • There are also cases where interior designers disappeared after the first payment was made.

What can consumers look out for?

As mentioned in one of our interviews with 4 interior design experts, here are some things we can lookout for.

  • It is important to research the credentials and history of the interior designer that you will be using, before making your first payment.
  • While cheaper packages may seem attractive, it usually comes with a price. One of such is the compromising of quality of the materials used.
  • It is important to set a realistic budget and educate yourself on the information on sales and promotions before heading out to search for an interior designer.
  • Usually getting a quotation from a few interior designers is necessary. If a package appears too good to be true, it probably is.
  • The most one should be paying is a 20% deposit at most. If the interior designer is asking for a percentage such as 50%, maybe it is time to think twice.
