How To Steal A House

Recommended Posts

Just came across this. Enjoy.


Neighbours asked
under whose authority she was acting
after she apparently
told the locksmith that she was a ‘solicitor’
. She gave them a sheet of paper which
quoted snippets from the Treasury Solicitor’s website
about ‘bona vacantia’ properties.
She wrote on the paper:
‘I would rather see an empty house brought back into productive use than left to rot without even any insurance.’
She said she would
soon be moving paying tenants into the house
, with rents being paid to her.

Mr Gapes, Labour member for Ilford South, got in touch with police, and the Treasury Solicitor’s department employed another locksmith to change the new locks.

So she didn't get away with it.

So she didn't get away with it.

No experience tell us this is probably by now a widespread practice.....

And no legal penalty for taking a punt and getting rent in return.
