On 30 October 2023 the directors of H.P.A.S Limited appointed Richard John Harrison and William James Wright of Interpath Advisory as joint administrators. The administrators are qualified insolvency practitioners.
H.P.A.S Limited (trading as Safestyle UK) is a UK-focused retailer and manufacturer of PVCu windows and doors, and is authorised and regulated as a credit broker by the FCA. It is a wholly owned subsidiary of Safestyle UK plc, which is listed on the AIM exchange.
H.P.A.S Limited is no longer providing access to credit for the purchase of its goods. All existing credit agreements that were drawn down on completion of work remain in place and the administrators will provide updates to customers as soon as possible.
In early November 2023 the joint administrators of H.P.A.S Limited reached an agreement to sell Safestyle UK’s order book, as well as certain other assets, to Anglian Windows Ltd (T/A Anglian Home Improvements). Anglian Home Improvements is contacting all Safestyle UK customers to confirm details of their order and to arrange completion or fulfilment of the order.
The manufacture and sale of products such as windows and doors are not FCA regulated activities.
H.P.A.S Limited’s administration does not change the payment terms and conditions of customers’ credit agreements, these are the same as when the credit agreement was taken out. This means that customers are still liable to make repayments as per their agreements with the finance providers. The firm remains subject to the same regulatory rules regarding the fair treatment of customers.
