P.S.U.’s Eviction from Hilltop Property Inevitable?

According to Estevan Perera, the Registered Land Act gives two opportunities for the court to set aside a land title—when the title was issued in error or if it was part of a fraudulent transaction.  As such, Simplex Design Limited is legitimately the sole owner of the hilltop property. An eviction notice was issued in 2019 to the P.S.U. by Simplex and it is known that there were negotiations initiated by the union to purchase the property from the private company.

“We have a counter claim against the P.S.U. wherein we are seeking that the P.S.U. vacate the property and that is to be heard.”

“So now, on Monday, you all will initiate that action to eject them from the property, which Simplex owns?”

“The claim for the eviction has already been filed, it is already before the court; in fact, it forms a part of this very claim, but that hearing will come up for the first time next week. But that hearing will come up for the first time next week and then from there, the court will hear the case and take it through its necessary stages and ultimately make a decision as to whether or not they will evict the P.S.U. from the property. We have yet to see the defense by P.S.U. in respect to the application for eviction. Obviously, they will be meeting with their attorneys and filing a defense. So until we see that then we will be able to response and speak to what they have in their defense. But at this point, you are correct; we believe that we have the right to evict them.”
