Estate agency business Oystons has been taken over.
According to local media reports, the business headed by former controversial Blackpool Football Club owner Owen Oyston, has now been taken over by Tiger Sales and Lettings.
Craig Webster, Tiger Sales and Lettings managing director, confirmed the acquisition.
He told local media: “All I will say at the moment is that we have purchased the Oystons estate and lettings business.
“I can also confirm that no member of the Oyston family are involved and this is a clear takeover.”
Blackpool FC was placed into receivership in February. This was so that the club could be sold and the money used to pay off some of the money allegedly owed by the Oyston family to Latvian banker Valeri Belokon.
Local media reports add: “The estate agency was not included in the February High Court order which declared the assets of Blackpool Football Club (Properties) Ltd, formerly Segesta Ltd, which owns Blackpool FC, the stadium, the training ground and the Travelodge, should be sold off in order to repay £25m owed to former Blackpool FC chairman Valeri Belokon.”
Companies House gives the address for Oystons Estate Agency as Blackpool Football Club Stadium. The business was incorporated in June 2004, launched by Owen Oyston, 85, who still appears as a director on the Companies House entry.
