This happens all the time. How would you like me to answer your question?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Having done some investigating it would appear that the company have gone into administration. If that is the case how do I go about getting my deposit back.The director has started trading stating that he has wound up Seaforth Windows and is now doing buy at trade price service for windows and doors. We have a e-mail sent to a family member with this information.

Is there any thing I can do to recover my deposit

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
All you can do is contact the administrator and make a claim. If the administrator has recovered any funds you would rank as an ordinary creditor. I really don't think it's an optimistic hope though.
