When the soon-to-be married Antoine Jarjourah made the down payment on his apartment six months before the big day, he imagined his new life in a new home in the Kesrouan village of Sahel Alma was just around the corner.According to the initial contract Jarjourah signed with construction and development company Badawi Group, he was due to be handed the keys to the finished apartment in 2016 . After the company missed the delivery deadline, Jarjourah complained, which led to him signing an "appendix" contract later in 2016, which pushed back the deadline to March 2018, in return for a $1,000 monthly deduction from the initial total apartment price of $270,000 as reimbursement for the delay.Then, Badawi Group missed the second deadline. With Block E of the Sahel Alma 313 project still in its initial stages of construction, Jarjourah is close to losing all hope.She said she met one of the company's shareholders, Antonio Badawi, at a resort while she was visiting Lebanon. Soon after, she signed a contract in her husband's name, purchasing an apartment in Badawi Group's 353 project in Ballouneh.
