    SHANNON | vandals have caused damage estimated in the tens of thousands of dollars in the house they were renting at Shannon, in the region of the Capitale-Nationale region.

    Urine, droppings, holes in walls, scratches on floors; tenants have caused heavy damage in the remains, found VAT New. “They are gone with my furniture and they had to order the bailiff to leave,” added the owner, Jimmy Bertrand, discouraged by the extent of the damage.

    According to Mr Bertrand, the tenants had stopped paying their monthly rent of $ 1500. After months of proceedings with the Régie du logement, the people who lived in the area and were eventually evicted on Monday.

    Owners often find themselves alone in front of this kind of situation. Even if they claim a compensation, the tenants are without money and it is very difficult to get compensation.
