The call for said stop order exercise came in the wake of numerous complaints from residents of these housing estates as management conducted an independent investigation and found out that said information about extension and construction works was confirmed and has decided to place a stay order indefinitely.
In the same vein, the NHA Management is reminding tenants about the stipulations in the tendency guidelines they dully signed which states that before any alteration or modifications are done to any of the unit, they must meet the approval of the NHA Management through a written communication.
The National Housing Authority said it will provide technical advice to anyone interested in any extension or modification of their units. The NHA said the beauty of the estates, as originally constructed need to be maintained by residents.
The NHA management wants to encourage all residents of the various housing estates to abide by the regulations enshrined in the guidelines to ensure a smooth working relationship with its Management.
The Housing Estates in question are New Georgia Estate, E. J. Goodridge, (Barnersville) Stephen A. Tolbert, Old and New Matadi, NASSCORP Village, and Ben Town.
Meanwhile, the NHA Management said it has instituted an inspectorate Division charged with the responsibility to consistently monitor it estates, vacant land and other assets across the country to ensure no illegal land sale, easements or encroachment occurred.
The NHA is therefore sending a team of inspectorates to visit all those mentioned estates with a view to dialogue with tenants and other residents to promote the government’s pro-poor agenda that places the interest of Liberian citizens above the simple desire to make money.
