Repossession, Repossession, Repossession?

Recommended Posts

Neighbours moved in next door in February 2003 paying £122.5k for a small three-bed house. Two adults (neither of whom really seemed to have a proper job!), two young kids and a super-huge (but stupid!) Alsatian pup. December 2006 after lots of arguements they go their seperate ways ... bloke moves in with new partner taking one kid, missus stays behind with the other. House goes on the market for £165k ... nothing done to it at all besides the dog completely messing up the garden! Six months, two interest rate rises, a £5k reduction in the asking price, lots more arguements and seemingly no viewers later ... and they've literally vanished in a day! The "For Sale" sign has gone and when I got home last night the front and back doors were wide open ... the locks smashed in!

I wonder how much more of this are we going to be seeing in the next few months?

Still not entirely sure but reposession is my bet! I think the locks were smashed by them on the way out rather than somebody trying to get in ... two fingered salute on the way out? Will be keeping an eye on what happens and looking out for "For Sale By Auction" signs. A friend's mother is a manager in the local EA/Building Society that were marketing the property for the last six months and I'm tempted to fish for some info! :ph34r:

the local takeaway...

A girl was abducted and murdered in blackpool a year or so ago. The suspect worked in a kebab shop and bragged that he put her in the kebabs.

UPDATE: Just got home to find padlocks the front door and a notice in the window to remove all remaining 'chattells' (eh?) within 14 days. Repossession it is then!

The dog went last summer ... to his mother's I think. It got so big it kept knocking panels of the garden fence over and running off into the neighbourhood.

O/T but with regards to the above ... Missing girl's body 'put into kebab' Shocking! :o

UPDATE: The 14 days are up, the previous occupants long since gone, and a "For Sale" sign has appeared outside again. I guess the bank is trying to get back as much money as it can through a sale before resorting to the auction route? It's now up for £158k, which is still vastly overvalued IMHO, but that's a drop of 7k (4%) in the asking price in just six months!

I hope you live somewhere pleasant, thus falsifying what, round our way, would the obvious explanation.

Dealers. Dawn raid.

Good riddance.

Maybe the area's got a reputation for everybody wanting to know your business and broadcasting it

:)

:P

I have never said exactly where this is and have only given brief details about the previous occupants to show the context of the situation ... I'm sure there are many, many households around the country that would match up to this description!

My sister bought a flat once where the owners had shot through like that. She found tonnes of stuff that was theirs in the flat and garden shed including - bizarrely, and quite eerily - a gravestone for a one year old child. The whole place was a bit of a nightmare to move into though I think.
