Seven families evicted from Malick homes

THE Housing Development Corporation's eviction of seven Sixth Avenue, Malick, tenants for non-payment of rent yesterday ended with the the residents protesting in front of the corporation's South Quay, Port of Spain office.

The seven families, including Yvette Simon, her three sons and two daughters were served notices indicating that they owed the HDC more than $10,000 in outstanding rent.

The rents for the varying homes are between $150 to $200 a month.

Around 11 a.m., HDC officials and heavily armed police officers descended on Simon's home.

After telling her to gather her valuables, they began moving out her items.

Lesley John, communications manager at the HDC said that the company's eviction exercise began this week.

"Eviction is the final step in a long process," she said.

Tenants were given three letters each about 14 days to a month apart during which they were invited to visit the company, explain their situation and work out a solution.

"We usually tend to work on a case by case basis where we sit with the tenants and work out a payment plan and out of the HDC's 9,000 tenants only a small number are issued notices of arrears and even a smaller number refuse to reply to any of the letters."

John said: "The average arrears is over $10,000 which means that some tenants had not paid their rent in the last seven years. The monthly rent is $150 a month, about $4 a day. That's less than a bottle of water."

Last month Opposition leader Kamla Persad-Bissessar told residents the HDC was planning to construct several high-rise apartments in the area.

Housing Minister Dr Keith Rowley met with the residents urging them not to listen to the Opposition, and saying that when the apartments were completed they would be allowed back in.

The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today are Christians who acknowledge Jesus ;with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable.

Dey evicted yet ???
200$ is plenty compare to those who live not to far from NIPDEC carpark east of Independence Square. (ah cyah remember the name of that housing settlement) but their rent as of 2004 is 50$.  And i'm sure that some owing thousands, but ask them for a cellphone number they would ask you from which cellphone.

Since ah know myself they trying to evict those living in the apartments opposite South East Secondary (cyah remember what road dat is in town). Every PNM and NAR government pass they try. Is only UNC didn't touch that sore because people woulda start to bawl racism.

My little problem is, evicting them to go where ???
And if you notice also, is the famlies with the 6 and 7 bareback children in...

You, me, Queen and the other women dat in dis forum knows about Family Planning Assoc and what the do....we also know about rape crisis assocation and what they do too. But do we know if they go out into the community and talk to these women or girls ??? 

Okay back to this ting...

What government collecting money from them for?  Dat is sure votes.

Pursuit of Happyness.  The man had a child and got evicted....had to go to homeless shelters and even sleep in the train station one night.  The  child could have been taken away from him and put in a foster home if that went on for long and child services found out.

If they are put out most of them will end up by family or find a way to pay the rent.  Worse case is that the children are taken away from the mother.  What we have in place for displaced children......well I not sure how good we are with that.

Anyway...they not likely to start evicting people or even collecting money unless it suit them as leverage.  It will continue for a long time to come.  Vulnerable people are easy prey for politicians.

 De same govt who evict dem is de same to blame.
For years de people ent pay de 200 $ an nobody bother with dem, now is 10,000$ an yuh expect man to find it jus because you ready for it, dais why bandit running de streets now.
De reasonable thing to do woulda to give dem some sort of debt forgiveness and start over again, ent Lenny Saith get 30 million forgive.
Ah want de woman on de bass
