THE Black Uhlans are looking to move out of Townsend Street after close to 20 years at the South Albury clubhouse.
The bikie group is looking to sell or lease out the heavily fortified venue, which was created in June 1999.
But the venue has not received a certificate to operate as the changes required under the permit have not been made.
A number of non-compliant works had been undertaken in the past, which needed to be fixed in order for the certificate to be granted.
Club member Scott Raymond said it had been hard for the group to operate.
“I’m not sure why we get such a hard time,” he said.
“Everyone jumps all over us, criticises us ... they love knocking us down.
“Do anything good and you don’t hear about it, do anything bad and it’s all over The Border Mail.”
Mr Raymond said some people had expressed interest in the property, which is listed for sale or lease.
He said a future site for the group had not been determined, but the “climate” was right to sell.
“We’ll persevere,” he said.
“We’ll figure out what we’ll do down the track.”
Mr Raymond said the group had been scrutinised heavily because of “who we are”, but mayor Kevin Mack said they had been treated like anyone else.
He said anyone interested in the property should speak to the council first.
“They were issued with a list of modifications that had to occur before it could get a certificate to operate as a function centre,” Cr Mack said.
“They haven’t complied thus far so they can’t use it.”
Staff at nearby businesses said the property, which is zoned for mixed use, had been quiet of late.
Mr Raymond said there were about 30 Uhlans in the local area.
Meanwhile police will keep a close eye on Gypsy Joker members on Friday as they start their national run in Wodonga.
