9 Beaches Occupants Being Evicted Today

January 20, 2017

[Updated] The Police, Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service, and BELCO are on scene this afternoon at the 9 Beaches property in the west end, and it appears that evictions are taking place. Further details are limited at this time, however we update as able.

Update 1.37pm: A BLDC spokesperson said, “Bermuda Land Development Company Limited [BLDC] confirms that the few remaining occupants of 9 Beaches are today being evicted from the property by the Deputy Provost Marshall General.

“This is the culmination of a year-long process as a result of a court order for vacant possession that was granted on December 22, 2015.

“Unfortunately, IRC Sandys Ltd had sub-let the property without the consent, authorisation or knowledge of BLDC. BLDC returned to court and, on October 11, 2016, occupants were given 60 days’ notice to vacate the property.

“This was extended to January due to the Christmas period. Furthermore, no rent has been received from the occupants by BLDC and BLDC has been paying the electricity bill since IRC Sandys Ltd exited the property last year.”

Francis Mussenden, Chief Executive Officer, BLDC, says: “Coming to this decision was never an easy option and one we’ve tried diligently over the last year to avoid. Having exhausted all our options, we’re disappointed to be left with no other choice but to evict the occupants.”

Update 2.06pm: The Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service was actually on scene due to a fire, as at 11.13am they responded to two mattresses on fire in the the old staff quarters lounge of 9 Beaches. Details here. For clarity’s sake, the BFRS was on scene specifically due to the fire, not for the evictions. Once the fire was extinguished, the BFRS left the property.

    Shame it had to happen but shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone including the tenants and it sounds like the BLDC were more than accommodating and fair, especially when you consider they were not getting rent and still paying for the electricity.

    • Triangle Drifter says:

      Nothing will happen there till that stinking farm is gone. It smells almost as bad as a feed lot with thousands of cows in it.

      • Micro says:

        They knew there was a farm next door when they built it.

        • So Sad! says:

          Which is why nothing hospitality related will happen there. Smells like dead animals over there.

    • Point boy says:

      Lmfao.. The beach ain’t going anywhere!!

  5. Terry says:

    What a mess.
    What the hell is going on.

  6. Point boy says:

    It’s sad yes. But. Comes at no surprise. The residents know it too. It’s been very fair to this point.

    Sorry, but times up.

  7. Sandys says:

  8. wahoo says:

    Don’t go East.

  9. Terry says:

    Hope they don’t make their way down to the new AC land.

    Just think about the notion that a few riders hijacked someone else’s property for over a year to the detriment of BLDC contributed nothing stalled any potential investors from engaging in a lease cost Bermudians in terms of jobs potential tourism revenue or other then have the audacity to set mattresses on fire as if they were being treated unfairly. Now BLDC will have to spend thousands of dollars just to clean up the mess. Other people’s mess.

  11. I and I says:

    How come no one is asking that tourism guy um what he name um he part owner at The Reefs what happened.His name will come to me.

  12. Triangle Drifter says:

    Best to tear down the remaining buildings to prevent any more squatters moving in & solidly board up the solid structures till some use is found for the property. If not for the stench from the farm it would be absolute prime tourism property for something like another Cambridge Beaches.

  13. Lone Wolf says:

    They should market it as a farmer’s get-away. Advertise to the farming communities around the world as a paradise vacation with the smells and comforts of home.

    Most farmers and horse or cow owners don’t mind the smell of large animal manure and would enjoy that location.
