Hubert C Leach Ltd (in members’ voluntary liquidation) (formerly trading as Leach Homes) (“the Company”)
After over 80 years in the development and house building business the shareholders of the Company met on 31st December 2014 and resolved to commence the formal solvent winding up of the Company and its affairs. Accordingly, Anthony Cliff Spicer and Finbarr Thomas O’Connell of Smith & Williamson LLP were appointed joint liquidators of the Company in a solvent liquidation process on 31 December 2014.
As you can imagine, with a business of this pedigree, it will take some time for the process to run its full course. The shareholders are committed to ensuring that all of the agreed liabilities of the Company are met before the conclusion of the liquidation.
An agreement with NHBC has been established whereby the NHBC will assume all ongoing obligations and liabilities of the Company in relation to its obligation to you under the Buildmark Policy relating to your property.
The directors of the Company have made a Declaration of Solvency to the effect that all of the Company’s debts will be paid in full. This is therefore a solvent liquidation, meaning that any amounts owing to you or any party, by the Company prior to liquidation and in respect of services enlisted post liquidation will be met in full.
Although the trading operations of the Company concluded upon the joint liquidators appointment, an organised wind down of the Company’s affairs is continuing for the time being under the supervision of the joint liquidators and their staff.
Please note retentions will only be repaid net of any contra-charges and upon the receipt of a valid claim, with supporting paperwork and after the expiry of the relevant retention period.
Liam Clarke and James McGrath of the joint liquidators’ staff are dealing with the day to day matters in this regard on behalf of the joint liquidators of the Company, therefore please contact them with any claims or queries you may have on the details outlined below:
