Court orders relocation companies to provide services

THREE companies have been ordered to restore water and electricity to a resident in Jing'an District who has refused to be relocated.

The Jing'an District People's Court delivered the verdict, today's Shanghai Morning Post reported.

But the court declined the woman's claim for compensation of 4,200 yuan (US$614.57).

The resident, surnamed Lu, filed a claim with the court in February citing three companies, the Shanghai Land Storing Center, the Shanghai Jing'an District Land Management Center and the Housing Relocation Co Ltd of Jing'an Real Estate Group.

The three companies started a relocation project in Jing'an's Fengyang Road in March last year. They promised that water, electricity, gas and telecom services would not be cut off to households that did not agree to be relocated, Lu said.

But Lu, the only resident who refused to be relocated, had her water and electricity cut off in October last year. She asked the court to order the companies to resume the supply and pay 4,200 yuan compensation.
