Default BEWARE: if you rent your house in Aruba

We rented our house out on a yearly basis that was renewable every year if both parties agree. We told our tenant who had a renewable yearly lease Sept 2012 we were not renewing the lease ending in Nov 2012. It's been a year that he's been in our house and now the court has over-rided the housing commission who said we could get our house back to live in. They appealed and can now stay in the house. We are waiting for more details but it's simple - even if you own a house in Aruba, you can not do what you want with it. Really puts a very sour taste in our mouths about the country we used to love. We had plans to move back, now I don't know...

If anyone knows anyone who can help, please contact me!!!

So sorry to hear this -- how disgraceful of your tenants. I'm hoping you can get this cleared. I do not know how to help-----wish I did.

Must be like Italy, you have to pay the tenants off to get them to move out. It's a shame. Most people let their homes stay empty.
Sorry
