Hi, I'm looking to connect with any members who purchased from Brookes & Co, Maldon, ESSEX UK?  I have not managed to get anything from them.  They seemed to have washed their hands on this project dispite selling the product to me.  I purchased PH in block E and have been recently told that that block has not been build yet and that I was supposedly contacted and offered an alternative.  I have NEVER received any contact from the Developer or Brookes and i'm concerned. Has anyone else been contacted?  Can anyone put my mind at ease? :(

I was also hassled by this shower and given the hard sell by a pushy bullsh1tting salesman who tried to convince me he was out there every 2 months with the developers. I wont embarrass Brian by naming him. He sent me laughable 'sea-view' photos taken from a 1st floor unit in Block A and was calling me more than once a day at one stage. Needless to say he made no commission from me. I still get the weekly emails requesting me to book my place (to avoid disappointment) at one of their regular pressure selling seminars in London where they no doubt have their one-stop-shop accountants and salesmen at the back of the room ready to tell you what you want to hear and sign you up on the day. Anybody who bought through them has my deepest sympathy.

I bought with Brookes, and they indeed have been less than helpful

I was contacted by Patricia Raul an offered the option to swap into one of the units which has been completed.  Assuming the project gets up and running as we hope then I have the option to use this unit and retain all the "perks" negotiated with the Brookes unit.  there is no extra cost even if the swapped unit has a higher retail price.  And you have the full right, but not the obligation, to swap back to your original unit once Block E is completed (which will be after the resort initially opens)

While I do not hold Brookes in high regard, I did also purchase a unit in a project in Antigua with them which then fell through and was not launched.  It did take a while, but eventually I secured a refund in full.  This lead me to think that although I have not been satisfied by their performance, they are not complete sharks !

If you would like any further info please let me know

Kind regards

Kevin

These guys did try to sell to me but I had already purchased.

Since then they have tried to sell Florida land sites to me via email. Every email, even years ago, suggested it was the best time to buy!

Redleader,

Many thanks for your info. Apparantly I was written to in October with the possibility of the same deal but did not get it as it was sent to an old email address and not put in the post.

It looks like a reasonable deal did you need any legal advice on the paperwork ? Were you given any other option of a refund for example ?

I Have still no confidence in Brookes as I believe It is them who should have driving this on our behalf and they still refuse to answer any of my correspondence having taken a fat fee for selling to me.

Are there any other issues I should be aware of in your opinion in taking this offer.

I can give you my telephone if you would like to discuss this privately or would like me to send you my personal email address

Thanks again

If they are your agent then they should be your prime contact for any information including updates, that is part of their fees.

Hi I bought through Brookes as well, they have gone into administration and come back with a slightly different name.
I have also been offered a swap and am considering it. Please email me on utam.patel@yahoo.co.uk to swap phone numbers so we can talk.
