A Superior Court judge has agreed that a receiver should be appointed to oversee Rockport Post & Beam to protect the interest of a man who is owed nearly $900,000.

Justice Ralph Tucker signed an order April 29 in Knox County Superior Court that ordered the appointment of a receiver. The order was at the request of Thomas M. Dyer. Dyer has also asked the court to place a lien of $893,305 on the property. The judge has yet to rule on that motion.

In the lawsuit filed by Dyer, he states that he sold the West Rockport business to Andrew J. Broskie of Winslow and helped finalize the sale by loaning the new owner the money with the agreement that it would be repaid in monthly installments.

Dyer claims that the payments stopped in January. He said the toll-free number for the business has been disconnected and that property is being removed from the business.

A telephone call was made to the business and the local phone number was not in service.

Rockport Post & Beam’s Web site states that it custom designs and builds homes, cottages and barns. Broskie is listed on the Web site as the president of the business located on Route 90 and it states that the business is a small, owner-operated operation.
