Hello, my name is Ben and it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. Is there any mention of the funder in the contract?
No mention in the contract of the Funder whatsover, the person is an invidual, who made it clear from day one that he was 'just' the funder.
Just because this party was the funder of the project does not mean that they can become a party to the contract which you had entered into with the limited company. If there is a written contract in place which specifically names you and the company as the parties to that contract and does not mention anything about the funder being part of it or being able to lay any claim to the agreement, then it is very unlikely that they can just step into this agreement and replace the limited company once it has ceased trading. Your contract would still remain with the company and if it no longer exists then your obligations can transfer to the insolvency practitioners, assuming the company has gone insolvent and they have stepped in to resolve its status. In these circumstances you can refuse to deal with the funder unless they can point you to a specific provision in the agreement that confirms they were a party to the contract and can demand that you discharge your duties under that agreement.
I would be grateful if you could please take a second to leave a positive rating - your question will not close and I can continue providing further advice if necessary. Thank you
