Housing horror

14 September 2010, 11:23  - Ilana
Dear Editor,

Can somebody please explain this to me? This is really a very complicated story but I will try to explain.

I have been renting a house from a very dear and lovely landlady for the past three years. At the beginning of this year she told me that she plans on selling the house and will be buying a new house (her mother's house) and she wants me to move into the new house.

Her mother was renting this house out and she gave her tenants notice as their lease was up and informed them that the house had been sold. The tenants had also defaulted on payments and the poor old lady sought legal advice.

They were given notice by the lawyer to vacate the property at the end of August 2010. However, at the end of July 2010, the tenants moved out which we witnessed. We also followed them to see where they were moving to and witnessed them off loading their furniture. That was on the Saturday.

On the Monday, the neighbours called the old lady to tell her that there were people moving into the house. When they got there, it was other people moving in. The police were called and they told the police that they were given permission by the tenant who had vacated the property, to move in for the month of August (as the lawyer’s letter gave them until the end of August to vacated).

Come end of August, these illegal inhabitants have not yet moved.

I am supposed to move into this house as the house I am renting is sold and the new owner wants to move in at the end of September.

The lawyers have now instructed me to move. The same lawyers are dealing with the eviction.

My question is: How are they going to make me move if they cannot get these illegal squatters out?

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
