I am the Claimant and a Judgement against a builder and his

Customer Question

I am the Claimant. A Judgement against a builder and his company which owes me  money has been issued in my favour by CCBC due to his defence being rejected. His Accountant claims that the builder has no assets and that his company is in liquidation. Can I make an application to make him bankrupt and how do I do this-this is to prevent him from duping others. (His accountant says he wants to discuss this! and possibly return and do some more work on my property. I am concerned he will cause further damage due to recklessness and lack of skill or being spiteful)
