    Work guarantee from liquidated decking company


    Hello, I got some timber decking installed and treated in 2015 and was given a 10 year guarantee. After some issues I tried to get in touch with the installer and have found that they have gone into liquidation. Is there anything that can be done in this situation? I'm not even sure where to start?

    "In regard to chasing a liquidated company, when a company goes into liquidation its assets are sold to repay creditors, the business closes down, and its name is removed from the register at Companies House. This is called a Members' Voluntary Liquidation (MVL). Insolvent liquidation occurs when a company cannot carry on for financial reasons - the finances from selling off stock and eqpt etc. go to the highest amount of debts - so I wouldn't hold your breath in regard to sourcing anyone - if you can source directors name that's the start but as you can imagine that prob won't get you anywhere - sorry Danny"

    "No unfortunately unless the decking was insured through the company the guarantee has gone along with the company."
