My apologies to all you folks in other parts of the world, but what you are saying is not the law, as I understand it, in the UK.
If your terms state that ownership stays with you until paid for in full then it is still yours and you can reclaim your goods at any time. It doesn’t matter whether the sign is screwed to a wall, or leaning up against it.
If your terms have a right of entry to recover unpaid goods then you can do just that without fear of prosecution for trespass. By accepting that clause the property occupier has automatically given you permission to enter, so where is the problem?
I’m no lawyer, so Martin should consult one if he feels the need, but I wouldn’t bother. IF the club owner wanted to take it further I think he would get short shrift from the police and would be advised by them to pay the bill.
