WATCH: Couple ordered to sell home refuse to leave
Today is deadline day for a couple to move out of their Port Coquitlam condo unit.
Hue Chi-Bea was ordered by a judge to sell his home in what is the second forced home sale in B.C. history.
The order is a result of a costly and lengthy dispute between Chi-Bea and the strata corporation that began as a fight over a parking space.
The parking dispute resulted in strata fines that Chi-Bea and his wife refused to pay.
The six-year battle between Chi-Bea and the Strata board has drained the finances of the residents, racking up $173,000 in legal fees.
The BC Supreme Court has ordered the RCMP to enforce “vacant possesion” of the unit to pay the fees.
Chi-Bea has gone to the BC Appeal Court, but the BC Supreme Court says his request to set aside the midnight eviction order has been denied.
RCMP are expected on site tomorrow to enforce the order but Chi-Bea says he won’t go.
