Ben Johnson Repossessed
Started by: Tommy Two Stroke (1957) Report abuse
They have not paid rent, so bailiffs have repossessed it

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse

Posted by: roylew (2456) Report abuse
First time Iíve seen anyone wanting to go in...what a dump

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse
Is that you in the shell jacket, Chatty?

Posted by: chatty (5538)  Report abuse
No it's my twin brother.

I have just noticed that in the picture it says 'free house' which means that it is not tied to a brewery, so who were they renting it off ?

The story I heard, ( gossip) It was recently sold to a businessman who wants to make it into flats, The sale held a clause that it had to remain a pub for a period of time,
this might be the reason it suddenly shut, I dunno, like others have said, It was't doing any business, if you're not making money, you can't pay the bills, the end of an era,
time will tell,

No way are any of those 4 are bailiffs

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse
Chatty, is he a MC supporter?

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse
Turbo, of course not. Bailiffs dress in black suits with nice big 4x4s, body cameras and look professional. Those four look as if they should be in Ince.

Platty no, Ince Parish fan.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1957) Report abuse
That could be a bailiff with locksmiths and an hired thug to beat people up, because owner of the property could be just legally taking possession of his or her property, business evictions are different from domestic evictions

They just look like builders

I noticed today that there is a printed notice on the boarded up front door of the pub, which will certainly be a notice from the bailiffs, stating that possession of the pub as been taken by the bailiffs ...

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse
TTS: Ha, ha. Reminded me of years ago when I came home from work to find a notice from the Bailiff telling me possession of my property had been taken! Scared the life out of me. It was about 8 p.m.,didn't sleep all night. Checked all my property documents, etc., phoned them in the morning and turned out it was the wrong property. Cripes!!

Didn't the landlord go into a business across the road?

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1957) Report abuse
You thick sod,,, if your property had been repossessed, the bailiffs would have forced entry and would have changed the locks or would have been boarded up the property, you certainly would not have gained entry into it ...

Posted by: Platty (69) Report abuse
TTS: They couldn't do any of that because of the make up of the property, with a flying freehold and the facias. bit hard to explain, but my neighbours explained that I would be there the following day. And in those days the notcie was given from the Bailiffs, there was no mortgage on the property.

You're just upset because of my comment about Ince, you thicker sod.

Posted by: Tommy Two Stroke (1957) Report abuse
I am not bothered about your comment about Ince.

I think what you may have received was a 'walking procession order' Walking Possession Order which is for goods and not for the building and I don't know what you mean by it not having a mortgage on it, because property can be repossessed for a variety of reasons and the decision is made by a court and that can be for none payment of rent, or mortgage, CPO's and even CO's the bailiffs are acting on behalf of the court and the court is acting on behalf of the plaintiff
