Evicted couple appeal apartment-fees order
A COUPLE who were evicted from their south Dublin home last year have brought an appeal against a court order appointing a receiver over rents from five apartments they own.
Retired accountant Brendan Kelly and his wife Asta Kelly were videoed being evicted last April from their home at St Matthias Wood in Killiney in relation to debts owed to the now liquidated Irish Bank Resolution Corporation.
The couple were also landlords of five apartments at The Waterside, Charlotte Quay, Grand Canal Dock, Dublin, on which €30,000 in management fees is now allegedly outstanding.
In June 2011, the apartment managers, Waterside Management Co Ltd, obtained a Circuit Court judgment against them for €9,684 it claimed was due in service charges in relation to those flats for which the couple had been receiving rents.
The company's managing agent, Margaret Ryan, said the debt remained outstanding.
Last December, the company obtained a Circuit Court order appointing Ms Ryan as receiver over those rents. Yesterday, the couple, whose address was earlier given as Simmonscourt Castle, Ballsbridge, Dublin, went to the High Court to appeal that decision.High Court President Mr Justice Nicholas Kearns said he would give his decision later.
