Elderly residents living at billionaire's bungalow village tell how they've had ... trends now

Residents at a bankrupt billionaire's bungalow village have told MailOnline of multiple problems with sewage, security and bin collection and alleged they have been left completely in the dark since his company went into administration. 

Robert 'Bob' Bull suffered a dramatic fall from grace last week after it was revealed he had been declared bankrupt and had debts worth some £725million - having previously been worth around £1.9billion.

The 46-year-old appeared 88th in the Sunday Times Rich List earlier this year and made his fortune by transforming static caravan parks into pre-fab bungalow villages.

But residents on one of Mr Bull's sites in Dorset, which fell under his company RoyaleLife until it went bust in recent weeks, say their experience turned into a 'disaster from day one' and that they were left to find out the firm had gone into administration via the internet.

They claim staff on the site 'don't care' about residents and were fearful of reprisals from speaking out. 'It's not nice. The whole attitude is just get the money in.'

'I wish we'd never come here', said one resident, who did not want to be named. 'We wanted to get rid of our mortgage. 

'We were told before we moved in that there would be an acoustic defence set up at the back of the property to set off the noise because there's a dual carriageway right outside, that there would be a swimming pool, coffee house, street lighting.

'But it became a disaster from day one'. 

None of these amenities have ever appeared at the Dorset site, which offers homes to those aged 45 and above, MailOnline has been told.

Instead residents say they are facing issues such as dodgy sewage systems which leave them with sewage bubbling up beneath their shower and bathtub every time it rains.

'The sewage unit is like a swimming pool, the stench is unbelievable,' one resident said.

Residents also raised issues with refuse collection, recalling incidents where no waste has been collected for up to three weeks at a time.

The site is currently relying on a private service due to the site still being under construction.

'It's not a secure site,' the resident added. 

'We used to have a security guard that would patrol at night, he went ages ago. The gates are left open all weekend, they are only closed at night.'
