A friend of mine is taking a motor company to court over a second hand car that was not fit for purpose, he has been advised to do this by consumer direct who say he has a strong case. He paid just over £3k for the car. He is concerned however that the Directors have a number of companies where they can move their assets to avoid settling the CCJ and when they have a number against them will just set up another company.
The company was only formed in September 18 so no account information is available yet. I am thinking there must be safeguards to ensure Directors cannot behave this way. A winding up order would be off the table as the cost is too restrictive.
Can anybody advise please
