We have taken all steps in our power with Social Housing owners and are awaiting the commission decision in our favor for August.“.

They complete:In fact we are a priority, we have two minor children we can’t sleep outside on the streets of Saint-Paul and we don’t have a family in Reunion unlike the owner, there is no way to get other non-social housing so we have to wait for this apartment to be allocated in this month of August“.

Speaking of payments, the tenants completed: “The rent of 1,424 euros was paid per month (paid at the beginning of the month between 01 and 03 without any delay from July 2017 until April 2021), i.e. 64,080 euros. We asked the landlord before moving into her home for financial insurance that would make it possible to secure future rents in the event of a payment incident, so we paid €9,961 into a dedicated account available to the landlord via an approved financial center who specialize in escrow accounts to secure tenant rents (Contract signed by Mrs. Louise)“.

But Madame LouiseExplain the tenants, To prefer to start the eviction proceedings and not to keep the legal and moral contract in particular, by proceeding as such: take the money (9961 €) only after 9 months from April in order to break the contract when, according to the contract, he should have paid himself this money which was at his disposal. But despite all this, we insist that all means should be provided to leave the building as quickly as possible.”
