JNC WIN FIRST ROUND IN BATTLE WITH CRICKET CLUB
Justice Not Crisis appeared in Birmingham County Court today where Warwickshire County Cricket Club attempted to gain possession of their 4 squatted properties on the Pershore Road.
Appearing before a District Judge JNC successfully established that there was a case to answer in that JNC had an implied licence (Tenancy agreement) at 318 Pershore Road. The Judge heard evidence that a tenancy agreement had been signed at 3 properties on Pershore Road that are owned by WCCC.
JNC offered no defence to the claim for possession of 310,312 and 314 Pershore and the Judge ordered possession of the properties to WCCC forthwith.
JNC successfully applied for an adjournment of several weeks. Despite opposition to this by WCCC the Judge ordered the case to be re-listed for Directions in 3 weeks time (Date to be confirmed) and then sent for trial.
These properties have been empty for some years and we suggest should be used for short term tenancies whilst the redevelopment plans are considered for the expansion of the Cricket Ground. Attempts to negotiate with the Cricket Club have been ignored by them despite them owning at least three further properties in the same location which are tenanted on short term lease.
JNC will rigorously defend the action by WCCC as there are currently 9 homeless people housed in these properties.
