Seniors in an NDG residence are facing the risk of eviction.
According to the Montreal Gazette, twenty elderly residents of Borden Place could be evicted as early as August.
The building is owned by the Commission scolaire de Montréal, however they have been renting it to Borden for the past twenty-five years.
The two are caught in a legal battle with one another. They have not been able to negotiate a long term leasing deal which prompted Borden to withhold their rent since the fall of two-thousand eight. The debt has reached four-hundred thousand dollars.
The building must be vacated by the end of August if the rent isn’t paid. The CSDM and the Montreal Health and Social Services Agency is allowing residents to stay until they find a place to live if they can’t by the eviction deadline.
