St Romuald Homes to Disappear

St Romuald Homes to Disappear

In a couple of week’s time, a whole neighbourhood of 169 houses, in Saint-Romuald, will begin to disappear, leaving the inhabitants in a sticky situation and with the impression of being duped.

Threats, forced contracts, surprise expenses, and moving always delayed are the words that come out of the residents’ mouths from Place Vanoise, in Saint-Romuald, when they talk about their eviction notices. This is incredibly stressful for all concerned.

Many residents have been diagnosed with depression or got sick caused by the stress of this situation.

About a year ago, the owner of Place Vanoise decided to sell, in order to build a residential and commercial development.

The 169 mobile-home residents on the site simultaneously learned that they were being forced to move.

Allegedly, the developer had promised to take care of all moving costs without any fees for all residents, this autumn.

A local firm got the contract to move them to Saint-Nicolas.

The occupants at first decided to contest the eviction, but on June 30th, 2012, a court judgement for their imminent departure was the only answer they got. However, they had the right to claim for damages or compensation.

At that time, the situation took a turn for the worse The locals suddenly received non-detailed bills asking them to pay for tons of moving services.

Residents received transportation bills ranging from $1,300 to $15,000 depending on the house dimensions.

But for now, nothing has moved, and numerous questions remain unanswered.

In consequence, they were all forced to hold back their vacations.

If this goes on, they will end up moving in the snow.
