Elvisly Yours FORCED to "Leave the Building"

Elvisly Yours has had a shop in London for 30 years. We have been at 233 Baker Street, London NW1 6XE for ten years and our Elvis Shop is a London landmark. We are even on “the knowledge” for London cabbies Over the years we have organised dozens of promotions attracting worldwide publicity for London and Britain and raising £thousands for the Lynda Jackson Macmillan Centre in memory of my darling wife, Maureen. Now we are being kicked out by new landlords, an overseas company who are probably Barry Manilow lovers.

We were informed by our previous landlords that new landlords Airdeny Ltd (British Virgin Islands) had bought the premises. We never heard a word from them until their law firm Fladgate LLP served papers on us 24th March 2010 to vacate the premises 25th March 2010 when our lease expired. We threatened to get an Injunction to delay or stop the repossession and were given a week extension.

The new landlords we have been informed are Ali al-Faraj and Yoram Yossifoff…names sound familiar? Ali al-Faraj was the previous owner of Portsmouth FC until he defaulted on a loan to buy the club. Yoram Yossifoff was also connected with Portsmouth FC and apparently was a previous owner of Maccabi Tel Aviv. Having “put a gun to our heads” with the threat of immediate repossession they then demanded £50,000.00 per year rent. This is 425% increase in rent on our previous lease. We offered to pay rent well above the market rate and £10,000.00 per year more than we were paying but the offer was rejected.

You know, nothing has changed since the times of Robin Hood and the Sheriff of Nottingham as landlords still have ridiculous power. You cannot lease shop space in London without signing away your rights to Landlords so they can kick you out anytime and charge want they want in rent. Either you pay the new rate or they have powers to change the locks of your premises.
