Barbados: Landlord locks out tenants for unpaid rent

Tenants of Pyramid Mall at #22 Swan Street, were upset today after they attempted to enter the building and realized that the lock on the main door had been changed.

They complained that landlord Ibrahim Noumeh took the unfair decision to change the locks because they refused to pay rent for the two months the country was on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, after agreeing to re-open the mall after a meeting with police and some of the tenants at his Broad Street store, Noumeh told members of the media that some of the tenants owed him as much as six months’ rent. He noted that he tried several ways to get his monies from them, including notices, phone calls and face-to-face conversations.
