AN expat landlord has won his legal battle against a tenant who refused to pay rent for two years.
Dave Lomas, 66, from Middlesbrough, held an unprecedented one-man protest outside his home in Campillos, in November.
And after a two-year legal tussle Lomas’ unwanted tenant has finally been issued an eviction order – to be out by March 10.
But despite getting his home back, Lomas will not see a single cent of the €10,000 owed in unpaid rent.
“I don’t think I will ever see any money from this guy,” Lomas said. “He has already shown how shrewd he is by living there for two years rent-free.
“But thanks very much to the Olive Press for highlighting the problem, which was spotted by the powers-that-be.”
Lomas has agreed for his ex-wife to move into the property that they bought together in 2008.
