Ex-Premier League footballer Robbie Keane and his wife Claudine have succeeded in a possession claim at the Central London County Court to evict Sandi St Paul and David Lawrence from their Hertfordshire home, worth approx. £3.8m, after Ms St Paul and Mr Lawrence stopped paying the £8,000-a-month rent.
The Keanes told Central London County Court that there were rent arrears of nearly £300,000.
The court heard that Mr Lawrence had countersued the Keanes in a bid to offset the rent arrears against alleged failures by the Keanes to make repairs to the property, including a faulty entrance buzzer and to the underfloor heating system however, the judge dismissed the counterclaim due to lack of evidence supporting it and said both defendants had failed to engage with the owners of the house to ‘allow access to assess disrepair’.
The Judge ordered possession of the property and £292,192 in rent arrears, plus £70,000 towards legal fees.
The Keanes will so be entitled to a further £263.01 for every day after June 20 if the Keanes are not given possession of their property.
