St.maarten – Another attempt by Alegria Real Estate to evict Jimy’s NV from its property fell short in the Court in First Instance yesterday. The court rejected the requested and sentenced Alegria to pay Jimy’s expenditures of one thousand guilders for the procedure.
Jimy’s has a lease agreement for two units at the former Caravanserai Resort (now: Alegria Resort) in Beacon Hill – Le C-lounge and Thai Smile.
Alegria asked the court to order Jimy’s to evict both units within a week after the ruling and to order the company to pay around $98,000 – a sum that includes rent, maintenance fees, utility costs and late fees. Alegria told the court that Jimy’s fails to pay the rent and that the arrears for rent alone have run up to around $48,000. There is also significant damage to the building, the result of a fire on April 3 of this year and Alegria claimed that it cannot be demanded that the company repair it, considering reconstruction costs and the value of the building.
Jimy has a lease agreement that sets the rent at $3,000 per month, plus a maximum of 15 percent of this amount for maintenance.
