A Melbourne builder has launched legal action against Brittany Leigh McGuire, daughter of Melbourne underworld associate Danielle McGuire, over claims she refused to pay more than $600,000 for the construction of a backpacker hostel in St Kilda.
Brittany McGuire, 23, is the partner of accused murderer Abdullah El Nasher and the director and owner of Punt Road Hostel Pty Ltd, which is also listed as a defendant in documents lodged in the County Court on November 4.
British backpacker, 22, and her Canadian travelling companion were found dead just hours after falling ill in Cambodian hostel, inquest hears
Natalie Seymour, 22, had messaged her mother back in the UK to say she and her 27-year-old friend Abbey Gail Amisola had a severe stomach upset and were going out to get help. But hours later staff at the Monkey Republic guesthouse in Kampot, southern Cambodia, entered their room to find them dead.© Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Natalie Seymour, 22 Today, a coroner investigating Ms Seymour's death returned an inconclusive open verdict after hearing she and her friend had brought an unknown over-the-counter medication.
However, her mother, who famously travelled to Greece with underworld figure Tony Mokbel as he tried to flee, is the operator of the budget accommodation business near St Kilda junction, and runs another hostel in a former Collingwood pub.
Building company RPA Construction claims in a County Court writ that it agreed to a "cost-plus contract" in June 2018, after meeting with Danielle McGuire and an architect in 2017.
The 47-year-old had introduced herself as Danielle Legh at the meeting, and used the same name in email correspondence regarding construction of the 113-bed hostel, which has since opened.
Court documents allege that Brittany McGuire's company was issued with three invoices over a three-month period in 2018 that totalled $616,576, but the builder received just one payment of $137.09.

But her mother, using the name Danielle Legh in correspondence on October 4, accuses the builder of breaching his contractual obligations and denying her access to the site for inspection.
In the writ, the builder claims he is owed $692,078.05, which includes interest of $79,308.88.
The hostel project was originally rejected by Port Phillip Council, which cited noise, rowdy behaviour and property damage by backpackers "returning from nearby licensed premises" in its objection to the plan.
But the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal made a contentious decision to overrule the council.
It is unknown if VCAT was aware of Danielle McGuire's involvement in the budget accommodation project, which marks a significant shift from her previous career in a beauty therapy business called Hollywood Hair Extensions Pty Ltd.
The company was registered in 2005, not long after her release from an 18-month prison sentence for trafficking $800,000 in ecstasy.
Power sign ex-Cat as delisted free agent
Former Geelong forward/ruck Wylie Buzza has received a second shot at AFL football after Port Adelaide signed the 23-year-old as a delisted free agent. Port Adelaide have signed former Geelong AFL tall forward Wylie Buzza on a one-year deal as a delisted free agent.Buzza played nine AFL games for the Cats after he was drafted at Pick 69 in the 2015 draft but was unable to add to that tally this year."I see myself as an AFL-standard footballer and I think I can contribute to overall team success rather than just being a number on the list," Buzza said.
When police raided her Collingwood apartment they found contact details for her then-lover Mark Moran, who was shot dead by Carl Williams in 2000.
In 2006, she joined her then-partner Tony Mokbel when he was hiding out in Bonnie Doon after jumping bail while awaiting trial on drug-trafficking charges.
She followed him to Greece, but their life on the run came to an abrupt end in 2007 when detectives from the Purana taskforce arrested him in Athens.
After Mokbel was sentenced to a minimum 22-year prison term, Danielle McGuire consorted with Bandido enforcer Toby Mitchell. The mother-of-two maintained a bedside vigil when Mitchell was shot six times in 2011.
In March, Brittany McGuire attended a boxing event where 30-year-old Ben Togiai was killed in a shooting and kickboxer Omar Bchinnati and Joseph Abouchaya were injured.
Her partner, Abdullah El Nasher, is charged with murder, while Brittany McGuire has been ordered to face questions about the fatal shooting in the Magistrates Court next year.
Mr El Nasher is due to face a five-day hearing in March to determine if he will stand trial.
