EVICTION AND an uncertain future are staring a woman and her four children in the face as a battle between a landowner and the Urban Development Commission (UDC) rages behind the scenes.

The woman, who declined to be identified because she feared victimization, said ten years after UDC relocated the family to her Bank Hall, St Michael home in 2000, she learnt that the land rent was not being paid and the UDC was in debt to the landowner to the tune of $6 050.

The landlord now wants the UDC house off his land and the woman fears she could be out in the cold.

The shocking news was delivered to her last year (2012) by a court marshal in the form of an application for an “order of ejectment” against the UDC.  (HLE)

HOW do these illogical and ridiculous situations evolve?
How are they allowed to happen and exacerbate?

Somebody has 'fallen down' -badly!
..and now this poor woman finds herself caught in deteriorating circumstances!

This sorta thing should NOT be happening
in our alleged First World Barbados!

"a home is not a house" but how/why would anyone withhold their identity in a situation like this, and is bank hall that big that a drive through this neighbourhood will not identify this house and subsequently its occupants? if it was me, i would be as visible as i can because if there's all truth in the report.the homeowner is not at fault, and if the landowner wants the land, its quite obvious that the issue is between the owner and the UDC
