” An estate agent has narrowly avoided jail after punching a policeman several times in the face in a late night attack. Neil Newstead admitted assaulting the officer when he appeared at Hastings Magistrates Court.
Newstead who own Oakfield Properties at Haig House, Station Rd, Hastings interfered with a policeman and policewoman dealing with someone else.
He became violent and punched the male officer in the face 4 times – when he fell to the ground Newstead continued to kick his legs on the ground.
The policeman was taken to Conquest Hospital where he was treated for concussion and heavy bruising to his face and legs. Extra officers had to be called to the scene to arrest Newstead.
Newstead was sentenced to nine weeks suspended jail sentence and 200 hours community work.
He was made to pay £200 compensation costs, and £150 court costs.
A man who like Power, Aggression and Speed. A Man who has no boundaries regarding his power and public, tenants, police or law. He considers himself above the law and exempt from law. Most likely to say: “Don’t you know WHO I AM!!” “I own half of Hastings.” “I could have your badge, license or job.” “You can do nothing. I know all the people that need to be known.” £200 is little compensation for a policeman going about his daily business protecting the public and ending up punched, bruised, kicked and in hospital with concussion. And a terrible experience of being punched in the face several times by such a powerful, violent, thick set man. A THUG.

NEIL STRIKES AGAIN
Although he got away with it, and it went for the most part quietly un-reported, Neil also beat up a taxi driver in very strange but vicious unexpected but a premeditated act.
While the taxi driver was driving Neil decided to get into an argument. These seemed premeditated as a way of covering or excusing what he was about to do. Without warning, as it really was the most unsuspected attack from anyone, who could only be considered a mad man, Neil reached over snatched the drivers glasses from his face. He crushed them and threw them to the floor and stamped on them. The driver was still driving and had to keep his hands on the wheel. But think how fast this most have been for Neil not to have given the driver time to stop or protect himself.
It was a very vicious attack, and many knew and heard about it. The owner of the taxi business tried to take it forward for sake of his driver, and the driver victim also tried to take it forward. They were not helped, but prevented. In the end, there was some compensation for the broken intercom system, but none for the driver or replacement for his £200 glasses.
DID NOT REGISTER TENANTS DEPOSIT, DESPITE HAVING IT SINCE IT WAS TRANSFERRED WITH PROPERTY TO LANDLORD ON PURCHASE IN JULY 2007. See certificate here of registering it in May 2012. Only because they realized they could not evict me until they had done so. No mercy. Their threat was always that they would evict me the minute I again raised my disrepair and severe dangerous and unsafe property again.
Tenancy Deposit Registrators said I was due the interest it should have accumulated during that time, and compensation for their failure to register it. Oakfield says NO. Letter to OP 2012 Letter 1 Letter 2
Sam Hensher says although the deposit was supposed to be registered up until April 2007, that it did not apply to them having received in in July 2007. There interpretation is way lax.
Also, in her communication via Daniel Hanlon with Landlord’s legal council Robert Draper she tries to suggest my deposit was a bond. It was not, it was my own money, cash in full, plus a full month’s rent when I took over the tenancy in October 2000. Deceit and deception by Ms Hensher. Basically for withholding money and not safe guarding and securing my deposit.
I am not the only person who has had difficulty getting Oakfield to correctly and legally manage their money and accounts. Oakfield is notorious for not giving tenants deposits back. Or even making tenants do repairs and decorating which they or landlord should do on top of not getting their deposits back when they want to move out.
Oakfield informed me that would never get my deposit back.
Oakfield informed me that I would never get back any money I may pay for repair and decorating after their failure, damage and disrepair. I was told that I would never get the money back, but they would gain from all my work and money after I had paid it and done it. It is quite clear Oakfield’s values. I paid to repair and decorate bathroom and bedroom ceiling after extensive flooding from upstairs, when roof ceiling collapsed due to a leak from the water tank, ongoing for months, despite complaints from tenants. Extensive flooding, all walls sodden, plaster shifted, sodden carpets, electric lights affected. Oakfield informed. Mark Youngman Property manager visited. Ignored it, and again under threat had to accept a water damaged bathroom and bedroom for 8 months between 2007 – October 2008 when it had dried sufficiently for me to pay £300 for it to be redecorated. Despite 5 big tins of paint the water damage mark on the ceiling can still be seen through the paint.
I was too ill at the time, so I just hunkered down, stayed low, kept quite and tried to be still and not evicted. But very very ill, and continued into deterioration because of the situation.
Oakfield was paid Housing Benefit for the flat at same time I was paying top up rent. They received 2 rental payments for same place for several months. When informed, I corrected my direct debit too them. I asked for the money back. They refused. Again said I would never get it back. In 2011, I met Mr Hanlon on the stairs who again told me that I would never get it back. By a bit of pressure and stealth I managed to persuade them to pay it back to me in 2011. I used the money half to fund a disabled support and advise and campaigning site due to the government’s cuts and Atos medical assessments. AFTER ATOS – Counting the Disabled Back In – Because People Matter.
It is from fighting Atos, government cuts and my Landlord that the fight made me better. But very ill and incapable at the time. But amazing what a bit of flexing the muscle gets you.
