We recently hired a company to complete our loft conversion, but we’ve had non-stop problems: leaks, no care for our home, Etc!
It turns out no stage of the works was actually completed and they just started the next to get the next payment.
I was suspicious and checked Companies House to find the company dissolved back in July - 3 months before they took our job on!
We still owe them money however reluctuant due to the poor workmanship and damage they have caused which I don’t believe will ever make good!
Where do we stand should we be receiving invoices from a company that dissolved some months ago yet is still trading and wrecking our home! Help?
If the company did not exist then you could not have entered into a contract with it. However, you likely to have a contract with someone - and it sound likely that that contract has been breached in some way.
However, the best course of action in your situation will depend upon the specifics: who is involved? What was agreed? How bad is the work? What has been paid and what as not?
Accordingly, I recommend that you consult a local solicitor about this. If that is not viable, you should try the CAB (https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/).
