One of the things I get asked quite often is: what are the trends and what are of some of things that I see with companies going into liquidation and the reason behind it. Over the years I have done quite a lot of liquidations associated with builders. One of the things I see time and time again is that with a small builder, they tend to try and compete on price thinking that that’s the issue. And of course when they compete on price they haven’t got the money to do the job because they have got a cut the dollars and cut the corners so they make the living and it reminds me of the time when with my first wife.

One of the things that happens just so often that I find is that people say “do you know a good solicitor” or they go and get their local solicitor or someone that doesn’t necessarily know about debt and insolvency. They just go find someone that is local or a nearby person.

Now certainly with debt and insolvency, it is a fairly specialised area and there are many things you can do that would help you, but the solicitor have got to know.

Presenter Doug Constable on Choosing a Liquidator or a Trustee ~ Having Your Say

By | Doug Constable | No Comments

So when you’re choosing a liquidator or trustee to your business, there are several things to look for I think. One of the things is it doesn’t matter whether it’s a big firm or a small firm, what you want is someone that you can become a person as opposed to just just a number.So if you declare yourself bankrupt or you put your own company the liquidation or you’re forced into it. The difference is is that if you do it yourself, you get to have a bit of a say in the type of trustee that is going to manage your affairs. As opposed to, if the courts do it in the case of liquidations they will just nominate the next one on the list. So when you’re looking for someone, again look for someone that you can talk to you don’t have to agree to go with the first person you talk to. Yeah that’s one of the advantages of dealing with a pre insolvency person which I’ll talk to you about later on, in another time.
