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)
both the builder and the company as the building contract had names of builder and the company in liquidation. 41k
Yes you can make the builder bankrupt.
You first need to serve a statutory demand
It is form 6.2
You serve this and once it has expired (I would allow a month) then you apply to make him bankrupt.
You then complete form 6.7
And submit it to the Court who will put a date for hearing. You then serve this as well
At the hearing if the Judge is satisfied the debtor has been served and the sum is owing they will be made bankrup
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
