We are encouraging them to develop those lands, to live up to the agreement of sale; and I should say that in some cases it is likely that we would move to repossess some of those lands,” Saul noted.“I can tell you that I would have instructed our corporate secretary to initiate actions to repossess lands from private developers who have failed to deliver,” the CEO had pointed out.last_img
