Sidhom and subsequently delivered . Mr Rafik R. Sidhom has this leasehold then resold to Alegria. Alegria is bound by the lease so Alegria these leases, timeshare contracts, not as a result of the foreclosure auction cancel or destroy. Relying on the rental terms in the mortgage deeds will Alegria therefore not increase. Alegria also can not rely on the rental terms as the Bank has always known that the leasehold rights were leased to third parties and the Bank has always benefited from the rental income. The Association further calls on the provisions of Article 7: 226 of the Civil Code which states that proceed in the event of a transfer of immovable property, rights and obligations of the lease to the transferee of that property: Alegria according to the Association.
