ADMINISTRATORS have vowed to “robustly investigate” the finances of a failed holiday lettings firm.

Brighton Holiday Homes went out of business unexpectedly on May 29... leaving customers thousands of pounds out of pocket.

The business specialised in short-term holiday lettings in the Brighton area. It is not yet clear why it stopped trading.

Paul Zalkin from administrators Quantuma said: “Our immediate focus will be to contact the company’s directors so they can assist us in managing communications with customers who have been left out of pocket, with no explanation as to what happened to their bookings.

“We will robustly investigate the company’s financial affairs and the circumstances leading up to its failure. At this early stage the situation is uncertain, but we will endeavour to secure the most positive outcome possible under difficult circumstances.”
