1. We reserved a unit in Bispham house and also other sites Dalton Street. 2. They messed us around with the car parking spaces form Day 1 saying that some were available and then weren't . We never got our reservation fee back for the one they said we have but then did not. They ignore all of our phone calls and emails all of the time. They own us thousands. 3. My friend bought an apartment in Bispham house and on the video on their website they make out as it is all luxurious and hunky dory, but they only show you the show unit! Their is no management at all in the building and no maintenance or cleaning or the communal areas or upkeep. The finish looks good until you get up and close and you see everything has been done on the cheap! My friend bought to rent out but cannot but whenever a prospective tenant goes round they see what a complete tip it is and she cannot sell it either as this building has a terrible reputation as well in the area. No one will touch it. 4. When you exchange contracts with them, the exchange money is given to Fresh Start Living and not held with the solicitor which is should be. We were so naive at the time and though this was fine then we found out afterwards that this is VERY unusual and frowned upon by solicitors and other developers. Also they register each development in a different company name so they can literally just close the company down and we have all lost our exchange money! If they were honestly going to build them and they are cash rich like they always say they are, then why do they need our exchange monies and it not being held with the solicitor. I really think they will close the companies down and the money will be lsot and I have tried to get it back but they ignore all of my emails and calls. I am speaking to my solicitor and thinking about taking them to court 5. I found out with a little digging on some sites that they don't actually own the buildings but still sell them! I don't know how they can get away with this to be honest. 6. I was going to invest in their student development in Manchester untl I showed it to a friend who had had a boyfriend sho had stayed there about 20 years ago when she went to Manchester uni and she said it is like an absolute prison there, little light and a disgrace inside. They has said they can renovate it in less than a year but my friend who is an architect said its at least 2-3 years and again the rental guarantee is backed by a shell company so you have no protection there and they want lots of money up front. I wish we never heard of Fresh Start living
I hope that you appreciate it as i would hate anyone to make the same mistake we did
|FS took £43k of us for 3 student pods in Montgomery House Manchester that turned out not to exist and are refusing to return our money coming up with all sorts of bull about selling them on and giving us a profit but seven months later and nothing has happened and they don’t even acknowledge or take emails or phone calls now. Also I believe the two sets of solicitors involved Gateleys and Stephensons have not acted in good faith in this transaction and its aftermath which is very worrying for investors.|
|I am so sad that this company is still going. While the director swanned about in a Bentley, investors, lenders, solicitors - and big institutions at that - are being played off against each other. These buildings do exist. But they are not owned nor do they have planning. It is all down to getting enough deposits in and selling off plan, without even lifting a trowel. I am amazed at this new guy thinking he can float this company. Unless he has a major overhaul in mind of the scandalous practices that occur there. People are declared bankrupt - that is not to say they have nothing. They reinvent themselves in another guise and do what they know best. Ripping off punters, staff and apparently the Manchester Evening News thinkls the sun shines. It was a scam and it will be a scam. The projections are good but greed always gets in the way. DO your homework. Don't part with any money unless it is in your solicitors account. Have fun.|
|Fresh Start cheated a lot of investors, how can a company like this get floatation? I paid deposit to this company in the July of 2011 for their so called development in Nottingham, but their sales director Paul Walker refused to write down the exact date of the completion on the reservation form they offerred me, and also refused to pay me back my deposit even they can not finish the student house in Nottingham in August 2012 as they promised.|
The reason they refused to give me my money back is that they didnt fail to deliver, but if there is no date of completion, they will never FAIL TO DELIVER. According to the information I got, when they sold the property, they didnt have both the planning permision and the ownership of the property. I put a post on the forum of Residential Landlord about my experience with Fresh Start, but their people asked me to take it off by threaten me their legal team was not happy about it.
English is not my native language, maybe the word I used in the post is not very suitable, but now I am writing a report to the local government in China about this company and my experience, definitely this time there will be no misunderstanding, because I am using my own language, and, the most important, I am telling the FACT, before truth, wording or grammatic issue can not be the excuse of lying.
If someboy can help me to get my money back, please contact me on:
or call me on me mobile in China: 0086-13113310382
|Hi all, |
We've had the following request from The Times newspaper aimed at anyone affected.
I am a journalist for The Times and I am interested in hearing from people who have invested in 'student pods' through companies like Fresh Start Living. Please contact me at email@example.com
|Montgomery House landlords are taking action against Fresh Start Living who are failing to honour their rental guarantee agreements. A number of landlords have received nothing since June 2012!!|
This situation is alarming as we understand that all pods in the property are currently rented out to students, many of whom have handed over rents for the entire academic year to Fresh Start.
However Fresh Start appear to have so far pocketed the money as many landlords have either received bad cheques or are being fobbed off with the following excuses - promises to pay by the end of the week; computer systems failure; or blaming individual employees as dishonest, incompetent or both!
If you have had similar experiences with this company please contact us via

|FSL are not paying rents to many owners of student pods at the Greenock Halls site. They do not reply to customer inquiries, do not pay rents, do not provide information about the HMO registration for the units, do not do their job in general|
