Residents living in a Cavan Town apartment block have been informed they must vacate their homes before the end of this month, this despite having signed 12-month lease agreements earlier this year.
Residents in one-half of the two-block apartment complex at Clare’s Court, Main Street, Cavan Town’ first received notification to leave when letters were posted through their doors on September 26 last, giving each of them one-month notice to vacate.
Speaking to The Anglo-Celt, one resident, a young student, said there was little or no further explanation as to why their lease agreements were now been cancelled, only that she and others were given the understanding its owners were looking to sell the property in the coming months.
“We were given no notice, only told to leave. I mean, we’ve just started college here in September and now this. They’re even demanding that we pay rent for our last month here, we signed a 12-month contract but that means nothing to them. There’s about 12 or 13 apartments with people in them and we all now have to find other places to live. It’s very unfair.”
The development, sold as luxury two- and three-bedroom apartments, was built by local construction company P Elliott during the years preceding the property crash.
The company managing the ownership of the property, Advance Asset Management, of which Mark Elliott is managing director has told the Celt he has “no comment to make”, and that the future of property was a “matter for ourselves and our client”.
