I have taken on an investment with ipinglobal

Customer Question

I have taken on an investment with ipinglobal 1 year ago in a secure exit strategy where you pay a 30% deposit on 2 student units in leicester,they develope them over 3 years, they supposedly pay you 22.5% interest/annum and can sell them anytime up to the end of year 3. If they haven't sold them by then the devloper buys them back. I have recently have received an email stating that they have halted development since xmas and brought on a new developer because they cant agree on the end product??? which will alter the original contract. The deposit is covered by an insurance policy. The problem I have with the project is that I now think the units are overpriced at £75,000 for a pod with one room and a bathroom ,I have seen other companies market them at around £43,000 to £53,000 on other projects for a unit. I would like to take my money out if at all possible.Do you have any advice?The solicitor who  drew up the contracts was Wilson solicitors in Horsforth(XXXX XXXX-XXXXX).The partnership was between the investor and Bridgepoint Ventures.

Thank you.

Is the deposit you have paid £22500?

Does the agreement contain any provisions for the return of the deposit?

Kind regards
