Property development companies call in administrators

Tue, 28 Aug 2018 | ADMINISTRATION

Two Bradford-headquartered property companies have been forced into administration due to insufficient funds to keep projects afloat.

The Golden Sands Developments Platinum Limited and Golden Sands Developments Bradford Limited have called in specialist business advisory company FRP Advisory, and have appointed partners Gary Blackburn and Paul Whitwam as joint administrators to manage the administration process.

Both Yorkshire developers entered administration on the same day – a consequence of cash flow issues affecting the companies and therefore the inability to financially sustain their commercial and residential projects.

As a result, the future of a number of prominent Bradford-based developments remain uncertain, but no jobs have been affected due to the administration.

Blackburn commented on the situation: “Unfortunately, due to on-going cash flow issues both businesses have been forced to enter administration.

“We are now focused on securing a sale of the land and associated properties and are working closely with property agents Michel Steel & Co. to find a buyer.”

Golden Sands Developments Platinum Limited own land on Thornton Road which was to be developed into residential blocks, whilst Golden Sands Development Bradford Limited already owned an apartment building on Vaughan Street.

The two companies specialised in constructing residential buildings and later selling them to buy-to-let investors from abroad.

In 2016, Malaysian-based entrepreneur and one of Golden Sands Developments’ directors, Ameer Abas, said: “Golden Sands Developments’ projects are stable, and GSD is financially sound.

“GSD has no intentions whatsoever to abandon any projects and put the clients in any sort of discomfort.”
