A Harrogate-based realtor 14 years ago has gone into liquidation due to tough trading conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
Hopkinsons Estate Agents, the trade name of Howroyd Estates Limited, entered bankruptcy this week.
The Harrogate-based company was founded in 2009, with Jeremy Hopkinson serving as sole director since 2015.
He has applied to continue using the Hopkinson’s Estate Agents trade name and has pledged to continue doing business with the existing team.
“Due to trading difficulties during the pandemic, Howroid Estate Limited has entered into voluntary liquidation,” Hopkinson told reporters.
“An agreement has been reached to acquire the business to continue trading as Hopkinsons Estate Agents.
“With no staff redundancy, the company will continue to provide quality service to existing and new customers.”
Hopkinson contracted COVID-19 early in the pandemic and required a lengthy hospital stay. After that, he suffered a long COVID-19 infection for another 18 months.
Holroyd Estate’s latest report shows that the company’s debt has increased from £162,000 in 2018 to just over £550,000.
