Your new Bob Dey Property Report column
[Note on 22 November: I thought I’d repaired all the removals of material for the period 6-12 November arising from a change in server at the website host, but discovered today this page was missing much of the material written for it. The update is a consequence of that.]
This page contains a mixture of property and other information, company formation, the down side of business, market bits & pieces, probably fairly cryptic and rushed.
The weekly Snapshots tend to contain formal information, while other stories on the website are generally structured. U will contain snippets, less often from formal sources, maybe unstructured and incomplete.

8 November 2001
Lawyer Eugene St John, for creditor Dempsey Wood Civil Contractors Ltd, continues to fight to get the shareholder-appointed liquidator of Red Hill Homes Ltd changed. There were changes of shareholding just before the appointment, the two former shareholders (Stephen Foley & Kim Hawkes) are both bankrupt with the mother of Mr Foley, Phoebe Foley, becoming a shareholder, and a family trust seemed to have been introduced to the share register.
In the Auckland High Court today, Mr St John sought an assurance from the lawyer for liquidators Meltzer Mason Heath, Brett Vautier, that he could get the trust’s accounts for the past two years, which would show whether the trust had regarded the shareholding as its own.
Creditors are owed about $600,000. Mr Vautier said the liquidators were happy with the paper trail leading to their appointment, and said the company had no assets. Justice Peter Salmon adjourned the application for a change in liquidators for a week.
