Scott Morrison’s nephew has been charged with 20 offences over alleged dodgy business practices, after homeowners claimed he had left a trail of destruction.

Daily Mail Australia can reveal NSW Fair Trading has slapped builder Mitchell James Cole, Mr Morrison’s nephew by marriage, with a string of charges.

The 29-year-old faces six charges of doing residential work when unlicensed and five charges of performing building work without insurance.

Further charges include one count of accepting payment without supplying goods or services, the second time Cole has faced that offence in court.

Cole is due to face Parramatta Local Court on June 11.

Several homeowners from Sydney’s south were featured on Channel Nine’s A Current Affair program in 2019, with two claiming that he had bragged about his family connection to the nation’s leader.
