Cove Devts says “good number” of tenants moved out of Grangeford

Cove Developments, which owns the Grangeford condominium, said a good number of tenants has moved out.

Cove had obtained a court order to recover 171 apartments last Friday.

The firm would only say it is in the midst of ascertaining how many tenants are still staying behind before applying for the writ of possession to evict them.

Channel NewsAsia understands this will take place before the end of the week.

Tenants were given till Wednesday noon to move out.

The long-drawn saga started when authorities found 140 apartments had been illegally converted into 600 units when Cove leased them out under a master contract to Ideal Accommodation. That contract has since been terminated.

Cove said it has been progressively taking down the illegal partitions and is also offering new leases to tenants willing to stay behind. So far, 29 letters of intent have been signed.
