Court Mistakenly Repossesses The Wrong House

April 30, 2009

England (ChattahBox) – In an odd story out of England, a man was shocked when he came home from a day out to find that his home had been repossessed.

It was an average day when Ian Parrott returned to his home, only to find that the locks had been changed, and the home had been taken by the courts for non-payment. There was only one problem: he didn’t owe anything on the house.

Apparently, the bailiffs had mistaken the address, and that isn’t all that was done. All utilities were shut off, and all the food in the house was eaten or taken.

“What has happened is outrageous. It’s just sheer bloody incompetence. A 2-year-old child could have done a better job,” he said.

Parrot has since been let back in, and the courts have apologized.

    Apologized? It would seem to me that they owe him compensation for the cost of the food they stole, cost of temporary accomodations, reimbursement for time lost from work while he fought with the gits to get his home back (since the court surely didn’t suddenly discover their mistake, and magically put things to rights)…

    In short, someone should be for the gallows.
