An estate agent from St Helens has been jailed for over 4 years. Richard Hall, who traded through a limited company, Brooklands Sales and Lettings Limited, was found to have defrauded clients to the tune of £40k. In addition, he sold the company even though he had received investment from a third party and did not own the company outright, just before he was made bankrupt for the second time.
During the second bankruptcy, investigations found that Mr. Hall had also attempted to hide a bank account from the Official Receiver.
Mr. Hall continued to lie and withhold information relating to his finances, however he has been found out and in December 2018 he was sentenced to 4 years in Jail.
