7. As a result of the conditions in the neighborhood some of these intervening defendants have lost or have been threatened with cancellation of their fire and extended coverage insurance.
8. It is necessary that the intervening defendants complete settlement forthwith under the existing agreements of sale or be able to negotiate for the sale of their properties to the Redevelopment Authority because most of the properties require extensive expenditures for repairs to roofs, electrical systems, heating systems, sewer lines, walls, floors, plumbing, porches, etc. to make the properties fit for habitation during the winter months, and to remove possible fire and health hazards.

12. The effect of the January 15th Order has caused a severe hardship upon the intervening defendants who have been directly and adversely affected by it.
