Question

I wrote to the Mayor to raise the plight of residents of homes owned by MOPAC who were told they were being evicted. In the reply received in December 2014 the Mayor stated that 'We will be asking Crown Simmons to consider whether any of their tenants who have been affected by this decision should be compensated and will be working with them to facilitate this' - what has the outcome of this been?

As previously explained, while MOPAC owns or owned these properties, in relation to the issue of compensation, Crown Simmons is the landlord and the proper relationship is between the tenants and them. As such, any decision as to whether to pay compensation and any record of the decision sits with them, and the issue will remain one between landlord and tenant.
