Adam, I have problems with 4 out of the 5 properties I invested with Newbrick and for the 5th one, I bought myself out of the refurbishment agreement with them.
A few of us have stories to share and can also back them up with facts and documentation...I will also share mine at the right time, but for legal reasons not just yet.However, I would encourage anyone with similar experiences to come forward in the meantime.
Strength in numbers!

Would be great to get in touch... I fear we may have similar stories to tell.
We are so relieved to discover we are not the only ones to have had significant issues with the above company. For legal reasons we cannot currently comment in a public forum, but we are more than happy to get in touch with anyone else who has a story to share. We are new to this site so please do message if you’re struggling too. Two heads(?) are better than one.
Loss of rent caused by a ceiling collapse, a disputed sourcing fee or costs related to the failure to remedy unfinished works under warranty.
If anyone has had similar issues and is happy to support provide a short, factual statement to that effect, then please message me.
Stronger in numbers.
Thank you to those that have reached out to me privately so far...any more willing to support?
Message me, please.
A ray of light among a blanket of darkness with these people...Newbrick Consultants Limited and their Directors: https://beta.companieshouse.gov.uk/company/06064991
On 18 September 2015 Newbrick Consultants agreed in writing to pay me £1,038.07 by way of settlement for the loss of rent suffered by me, as I was unable to charge rental income due to a collapsed ceiling resulting from inadequate works conducted at an HMO that this company had refurbished for me.
On 12th April 2019 under Claim Number D9QZ4P88 in the Slough County Court, District Judge Comiskey ordered that £1,038.07 be released from my solicitor's client money account having been paid across by Newbrick Consultants to be held on account fairly recently. To clarify, this is 4 years and 7 months after we originally agreed to this settlement sum!
This is a small part of a larger remaining claim to be heard in a new trial date set for 8th November 2019. There are four (4) witnesses that have agreed to make statements in support of this claim, who were either directly involved in my claim or have had a similar experience to mine with this company themselves, as have others that I know of that will not be witnesses at this time. It is my understanding that Newbrick Consultants dispute some but not all of the remaining amount claimed. So, it seems highly likely to me that either the court will enter into some form or judgement or we will end up agreeing to settle at least some of the remaining balance, but only after more legal fees, court costs and delay, of course.
So far, this has cost me thousands of pounds in legal fees and court costs, along with a wait of approximately 5 years after the same company either wholly or partially admitted their responsibility and liability, agreeing to make good and/or settle these sums with me in writing back then. Therefore, it is extremely frustrating for this to be needlessly drawn out and at great cost.
As you can imagine, there is so much more that I could say here. However, at this moment in time, I wish to stick to a narrow set of provable facts that are not protected by legal privilege.
