    Is there a way of finding out who the builder was if the house was built in the last 5 years?

    Knocking on the door could be a good start…

    If it is of such recent construction, council may have a record of it. Or the draftsperson noted on the council plans might recall who the builder was.

    As @mikesonthemic has mentioned knocking on the door would be a good idea since chances are, if it is an owner occupier they are probably still living there. Alternatively, neighbours may recall the company names on some of the tradie vehicles and you could hunt the builder down that way.

    near most of the houses in area were done by spec builders who got land off developer, so door knocking wont work because the people who brought have no idea who built it.

    A simple phone call to the Building Dept of the relevant Council will tell you the name of the Builder who lodged the plans.

    Even if you have to nip down and do a manual search wouldn’t take long.

    Cheers
