    Heard that some substandard roofing companies close down and then reopen using a different trading name etc - your contract is with the original rather than the new company. This way they can walk away from any previous contractual obligations. Wonder if it is the same in the building industry?

        Just a pity the directors can walk away with what they have done to people... The lesson learned here is, just because he is Elliot Robertson, do not assume he will be as good as his father.

        In my experience may builders are the same when it comes to snagging. Once they have your cash they no longer wish to know you. Where did the Manorlane team learn their business? Robertsoin homes maybe?

          If the company is offline then try a search acrtoss the web for addresses. Companies House will help - online service £1 for a download of details of company secretary, directors etc - will include home addresses.

            It was just a matter of time before Manorlane went down the tubes, who knows what Elliot Robertson will do to Robertson Homes now that he is in charge of that. Must be great to have a father who picks up the pieces and to hell with everyone else

                Thats true. He returned to Robertson Homes and promptly made loads of people redundant because obviously he knows how to run a successful Company.
