BrightHouse collapses into administration

Rent-to-own furniture and electricals retailer BrightHouse has entered administration.

Chris Laverty, Trevor O’Sullivan and Helen Dale of Grant Thornton UK LLP were appointed as Joint Administrators of Caversham Finance Limited, trading as BrightHouse, and Caversham Trading Limited on 30 March 2020.

The Joint Administrators are now in full control of operations and will continue to trade the businesses in line with Government guidance as to remote working or, where essential services are being carried out, only in circumstances where we can provide for employee and customer safety. 

Prior to the appointment of the Joint Administrators, and in accordance with the Government’s restrictions in response to COVID-19, remote working was commenced across the businesses where possible and all retail stores were closed.

The logistics and engineering business of Caversham Trading Limited will continue to assist in dealing with those customers who have claims for essential home item repairs and will continue deliveries of smaller items to customers’ doorsteps, to ensure where possible, customers products remain in working order.
