NOTICE November 2012

Crest Nicholson Group
Crest Nicholson and its leading employees were negligent to our Family of five young daughters. Crest Nicholson and its leading employees were negligent to our dream home of 14 years. Crest Nicholson and its leading employees were negligent to our dedicated and proven way of life.
Being solely responsible for causing a night time grounding accident to our houseboat home, (M V PICTON) whilst it was situated in Penarth Marina in Cardiff Bay (on April 2nd 2000) your company was negligent in providing its duty of care.
Essentially, your company forced the removal of some, but not all, evidence. Please examine our records – yes we kept everything!
Our dream Home of 14 years, our way of life and our entire personal Family possessions were ‘disposed of’. Everything we owned, had worked so hard for, and to achieve, was removed from us. All of it was taken away or destroyed as a direct result of the heinous actions of your company. We now know how, that by intelligent lawful process, albeit it with wicked intent, Crest Nicholson got away with it!
The act of negligence that your company committed was the genesis for the whole legal process of full scale eviction. Crest Nicholson sought to mitigate the loss and effect of its own negligence. Some might say the company and its directors did well – as some legal process may have provided for them to be able to do certain things, which perhaps common law morality would have forbidden. We say the company and its directors acted inhumane, without heart or moral conscience. It did wrong. It is still wrong.
Some of your former employees have moved on. We cannot move on. Those events, the processes we have had to endure and in coming to terms, have been a living hell.
We know so far, that Crest Nicholson is not interested in truth or feelings. We know so far that Crest Nicholson is not interested in Social Justice or ‘Right’ from ‘Wrong’. We know from firsthand experience what Crest Nicholson does with the trust of a paying customer.
We trusted Crest Nicholson at Penarth Marina in Cardiff Bay to provide us, our children and our houseboat with a safe haven, friendly service and fine facilities. On April 2nd 2000 Crest Nicholson spectacularly failed us. Crest Nicholson is still failing us.
Negligence may indeed be a legalese term of reference that lawyers can palpitate endlessly about all day, but ultimately that is what Crest Nicholson means to us.
We wonder, how far does Crest Nicholson go towards such things as honorable conduct and doing the right thing, even when the law permits that it can legally do otherwise?
We thank you for your recent hand delivered invitation to attend an open weekend at Penarth Heights to see the launch of the Captain show home.
However, in view of the great injustice Crest Nicholson has suffered to our Family, Home and Way of Life, we kindly prefer on this occasion to invite you to reconsider compensating our Family for our total losses to date.
With kind regards,
Marie Louise and Vincent Shalom
